As someone who works in a body shop, it doesn't matter how many sensors or cameras they put on a car, people will still run into something. And of
course as the generation that grew up with smart phones glued to their hands has gotten their license, there's a lot of distracted drivers out there
plowing into the rear ends of the cars in front.
Automated cars won't be perfect either, but they'll be better for sure once the technology improves. Mark my words though, if and when automated cars
dominate the roads and accidents become more scarce, insurance rates will be as high as ever and their profits will be enormous.
I fear for that day though. Yes, my job is a concern. Why wouldn't it be? But my real fear is the day the fun and freedom is removed from driving.
There's something awesome about driving a car; not just any car though, but a car that becomes a part of you and becomes a direct connection from your
body to the road. Once people are climbing in cabins, entering their destination and sitting back to watch a movie, read a book or catch a nap, that
feeling will never be felt again.
