It’s not easy to write about death.
Death, however, is a tragic and so far unavoidable part of automotive culture. In 2014, an average of 89 people died per day in car crashes. Worldwide, the numbers are far larger: An average of 3,287 people die every day in cars.
Those are sobering numbers and even more powerful when you consider that every one of those deaths was a mother, father, son, or daughter.
As common as deaths on international roadways are, one tragic accident has made headline news for being the first to happen in a self-driving car.
Have drivers already become too trusting of autonomous technology?
