Self Driving Cars Are Here Now




Technologies Driverless Cars

Ask most people and they will tell you self driving cars are something out of science fiction, or in the future. Many drivers will say, that they think self-driving technology is not important. The Insurance Institute, and the Obama administration, will disagree. The Obama administration thinks that self-driving technology is so important they have proposed spending four million dollars to make it happen. Not someday, but for the generation of drivers.

An estimated 30,000 people die in car accidents every year, about a fourth of those are caused by distracted driving. Whether because of texting, alcohol, fatigue, or some other distraction. Autonomous-car technology will help prevent much of the dangerous results caused by distracted driving. We are still a few years away from a totally driverless car, but many cars can drive for miles without human assistance.

2016 Honda Civic First Drive

The Honda Civic LX can be purchased now with advanced driver assistance systems. This system will brake automatically if there is something in front of it. When in cruise control it will stay in its lane and drive without human assistance for almost 25 miles. As long as there is another vehicle in front and lines clearly marked on the road, the new Honda Civic LX can drive without hands on the wheel or foot on the brake. Once in cruise control your hands and feet can just relax.

You might think this kind of technology would be expensive, but the Honda Civic sells for around $20,440. This is important because it makes this car affordable for young drivers. The newest generation of drivers benefit most from this technology, because they are more apt to be texting, dealing with children, or doing other dangerous behaviors that cause car accidents. A car that can sense when it should brake, return to its lane, or slow down, and does, saves lives.

While self driving cars can help save lives, not everyone wants to give over control to a machine. Many people consider driving to be a fun activity and don’t want to relinquish it to a machine. But cars that can drive with little or no human help can save many lives.
