You are absolutely right. If insurance companies dramaticaly reduced premiums based on what we both I'd think agree is a likely much lower at fault accident rate for driverless cars many people would engage the function and use it all the time just to save money.

Regarding who is at fault upthread - one problem with your suggestion IMO is that in terms of criminal liability when a death occurs when the manufacturer is at fault - as we know it's hard in large corporations to punish individuals.

In otherwords, who goes to jail if a 3 year old is kililed because the computer malfunctioned?
