In the driverless future, are we human guinea pigs?

Consumer Watchdog advocates on behalf of taxpayers and consumers in the public interest and works to “expose, confront, and change corporate and political injustice.” In a recent post, Consumer Watchdog argues that voluntary standards regarding the safety of self-driving cars don’t work.

Essentially, the self-driving car industry – made up of giants like Google and Tesla Motors (and, increasingly, major traditional automakers) – should conduct and publish self-assessments on the safety of their self-driving vehicles, but they aren’t really doing so.
