On ethical cars

A joint study by the Toulouse School of Economics, the University of Oregon and MIT  has found that people would prefer if others bought cars that valued other people lives higher while they would be more likely to themselves by egotistical cars that prioritized their own live and property higher.

A researcher at Google has now said that people should not worry about the trolley problem and cars having to make ethical decisions, because they should just be build in a way that they do not bump into other things.

On a related side note: did you know that the majority (80-90%) of the population believes they are above-average drivers?
