Positive and Negative Effects of Autonomous Vehicles on Society

Positive Effects of Autonomous Vehicles on Society

Drunk driving is among the leading causes of accidents on the roads. As autonomous vehicles will eliminate such since they are driven by robots that do not get drunk. Similarly, the use of phones while driving leads to distraction and sometimes accidents which will be avoided since robots will not get distracted from completing the driving tasks. Human error while is one of the leading causes of accidents on the roads. Self-driven cars will save society from the anguish of losing loved ones to road accidents since they will be safer.

Self-driven vehicles will save on fuel consumption since they will be powered by electric energy stored in batteries. Also, since they are more accurate and not prone to distraction, they will help save time by ensuring speedy transportation. Finally, since self-driven cars are electric and emit almost zero greenhouse gases, they will be a big plus to environmental conservation and will help reduce global warming and climate change.

Negative Effects of the Introduction of Autonomous Vehicles

With the introduction of autonomous vehicles, I foresee drivers losing their jobs since most people will prefer self-driven cars. Among the most hit by these jobs’ losses will include taxi and Uber drivers and an influx in self-driven cars may kill that industry. Additionally, the tendency to overly on software and robots may be a threat in itself.

These software and robots are not error-proof and a small bug like an error in the braking program may cause a fatal accident. Finally, self-driven vehicles lack morality. That is, they might not be able to weigh on who is most important between a pedestrian and a barrier. A self-driven vehicle can swerve off the road to escape a barrier and end up hitting a pedestrian instead.

How would a self-driving car change your life?

Personally. I prefer driving myself and sitting in the driver’s seat. This me you more control and elevates my responsibility to other road users and pedestrians. Therefore, I don’t see self-driven cars impacting my life in a big way apart from allowing me to concentrate on other things while the car drives itself.
