Hands on the Wheel

Your car: what might save you ... or what might not

Our daily driving should be carefree. For most of us it is, most of the time. The occasional — no, frequent — mishaps that happen “all of a sudden” are operational mistakes of “only a moment in time.”

Are too many drivers asleep at the wheel?

I recently returned from the April 13 World Traffic Safety Symposium at the New York International Automobile Show, a discussion about The Future of Automotive Mobility — Autonomous Vehicle Safety.

The momentum toward more- and fully autonomous cars is inevitable, and safety is the justification. The “how to” deserves a look. The grim statistics are not numbers; those numbers are people.
