Prosecute driverless car devs for software snafus, say Brit cyclists

Mark 110

I am a cyclist and a driver.

If the tech works I would trust autonomous vehicles much more than the meat driven ones when I'm cycling. Not sure what they are moaning about. Most cycle deaths would be avoided by either:

a. Car drivers being a bit more aware and in less of a hurry

b. Cyclists being better trained to not do silly things like enter HGV blindspots, undertake, ignore traffic controls. A lot need to be trained to control their road space a bit better as well, and do basic maintenance like pump their tyres up hard enough they can cycle in a straight line.

I would be in favour of compulsory cycle training before you can go out in traffic.
