By 2030, Driving Will Be Illegal. Here’s Why…

Self-Driving1

 

Human driving error is responsible for 94% of all crashes across the globe; technology can fix this.

 

You might enjoy the thrill of racing down the freeway or being able to hop in your car and head “nowhere” whenever you please, but alphr shares a pretty convincing argument as to why, someday in the future, driving will be illegal. 

The site shares, and Upriser summarizes, that by the year 2030, the economy will be severely impacted by the millions of truck drivers, cabbies, and delivery people put out of work. The era of endless innovation, as well as man’s century-long infatuation and reliance upon automobiles, will be disrupted. That void will be filled, however…

Driving will not be made illegal due to climate change or improvements in mass transportation. No, it will be an outdated fad due to the reason that innovations in technology will help prevent a massive amount of deaths. Every year, more than 1.2 million people are killed in car accidents (globally) – that’s not including injuries caused by accidents.

One must admit, the death toll caused by automobiles is astronomical. Last year, more than 275,000 Chinese, 238,000 Indians and 33,000 Americans died in preventable traffic accidents. Safety has improved, especially since Ralph Nadar took on the auto industry by publishing Unsafe at Any Speed in 1965, but there is no doubt technology will remedy the gap which is human error and irresponsibility.
