Re: Self drive
Its a question that we already have answered. If you have your car repaired by, say, a mechanic and he fails to tighten the lug nuts and a wheel later flies off - the mechanic is responsible.
If a person doesn't have their car regularly maintained and it a bit falls off on the road, it is that person's responsibility.
If a car develops a fault with its ECU and locks the throttle on, causing a crash, it is the manufacturer's responsibility.
There's a pile of case law that already exists on it. An automated car isn't so much removed from the "fly by wire" type vehicles we already have.
