    Unfortunately, with motorised traffic (autonomous or not) deaths are always going to occur. Sad as it is, people have to realise that this technology can never be 100% safe. If they cannot accept that then the only option is to discontinue autonomous vehicle technology. Maybe, it”s time for a public referendum on these vehicles so far it seems that the motoring lobby have been leading. However, I do note two basic failures in this case that shouldn”t have happened: 1) the car was travelling at 38mph in a 35mph zone; and, 2) the car did not attempt to brake. To my mind these two points represent an avoidable technology failure which indicates that maybe this particular implementation shouldn”t have been allowed on public roads !
