Google's self driving cars may be too perfect. They come to a complete stop at a stop sign, never cross double yellow lines, and brake at a hint of a threat.
Because the Google self driving cars follow the rules so well, they do not follow natural human instincts or patterns which can be concerning for actual drivers. It is believed that the extreme caution exerted by the vehicles may be the reason for some of the accidents they have been involved with in the past.
12 out of the 16 accidents Google's self driving cars experienced were the result of the Google car being rear-ended.
Google is working toward making the self driving car more flexible and more human so that it may assimilate onto the road much more smoothly in the coming months.
While accidents can happen by humans or self driving vehicles these days, if you are a victim of a reckless driver and sustain serious injuries, you may need a car accident attorney.
