Waymo Car Crashes, Driverless Technology Not to Blame

While there has been some backlash and concern about the safety of autonomous vehicles yesterday, there is no doubt at all that a Waymo car accident in Arizona was not the fault of the car. When a Honda sedan ran a red light at a busy junction on Friday May 4, it swerved to avoid another car, whose driver was following the traffic signals. As a result of this swerve, the Honda collided with the Waymo vehicle. In this case, it appears that the Waymo car was simply “in the wrong place at the wrong time”.

In case there is any residual feeling that the autonomous car was somehow at fault – it was in manual mode at the time of the collision, and was being controlled by a human driver.
