What Are Self Driving, Autonomous Vehicles?
Self-driving cars, also known as autonomous vehicles, are a newly evolving class of motor vehicles. Driverless vehicles are increasingly seen on our streets, and may possibly be the transportation of the future. As comes with any operation of a motor vehicle, there are significant risks that are associated with autonomous vehicles. The innovative technology that is utilized to allow autonomous vehicles to function has attempted to eliminate human error and increase safety in driving. However, this technology is in its early stages and consequently, there have been numerous accidents involving self-driving vehicles.

Due to the novelty of self-driving vehicles in today’s day, liability may rest with numerous parties, depending on the accident itself. Liability may fall on the manufacturer of the vehicle itself, the developer or programmer of the software that operates the driverless vehicle, or even the manufacturer of parts of the vehicle due to a defect with a part of the car itself.
