It is hoped that with the introduction of self-driving cars, there would be a significant reduction in traffic related deaths.
In Tim Bajarin's article "Driverless Cars Could Decimate the Organ Donation Program" he states:
"Self-driving cars have the potential to be much safer than the vehicles on the road today."
Saving lives is a good thing, right? Of course it is. OK so what's the bad thing?
Tim Bajarin sums it us this way "... if autonomous vehicles do reduce automobile deaths by 90 percent, this could have a drastic and serious impact on the organ donation program.
There you have it. Bu saving lives, self-driving cars could be costing lives. Please update your organ donation cards today.
