The future of roadway safety: autonomous vehicles

With over 31,000 auto accident fatalities in 2017, the reality of autonomous vehicles is coming quicker than ever. There are changes being made to increase road safety, and many lawmakers believe this can be done through driverless vehicles. Whether or not you believe them to be a step in the right direction, autonomous vehicles are quickly making their way to the streets.

Benefits of Automation


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), the benefits of driverless vehicles are paramount, as human error accounts for 94% of serious car accidents. By removing the potential of human error from car accidents, the NHTSA believes that road safety will increase exponentially.


Studies show that in 2010, motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) cost over:

  • $240 billion in economic activity
  • $58 billion in lost workplace productivity
  • $594 billion in loss of life or decreased QOL

Decreasing the number of accidents that occur each year can help drastically decrease the amount of money going to compensate MVA victims, along with help keep roadways safer.


It’s been estimated that Americans spend an estimated 7 billion hours in traffic annually. You may see it often; your drive is going smooth only to see an unexpected sea of brake lights. After traveling through the traffic, you find yourself wondering what it was that caused the traffic. Only to find out that it was from individuals going under the speed limit to look at an accident that took place on the side of the road. People are nosy by nature, and much of the traffic on the highways today can be linked back to driver error. Autonomous vehicles can help free up time for drivers to participate in other activities.


While the benefits of autonomous vehicles all seem to be aimed at increasing road safety, the truth is that they will not be implemented for years. People are aware of the dangers associated with driving negligently. However, drivers so things each day that continue to cause accidents:

  • Distracted driving
  • Negligent driving
  • Reckless driving

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident due to the negligence of another, our team at Sachs Law Firm would love to explain how we can help.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
