Dumb drivers and dumber pedestrians

 

The driver of a heavily-laden truck in China narrowly misses a jaywalker while swerving past another vehicle. Some people should not be allowed to cross roads without adult supervision… and some drivers should just go ahead and burn their licences.

The winners in autonomous tech are…semis? 🚚

 

When the rubber meets the road, which driverless vehicle will take the lead?

In the last few months alone, Uber has deepened its dealings with Toyota, taking on $500 million more in investment to expand its self-driving tech to minivans. Waymo has partnered with Walmart to help riders get their groceries faster and more efficiently. And Tesla has said its new self-driving chip, promising to process video data 10x faster than its predecessor, is finally ready.

There’s a reason why you stop behind the line

 

A motorcyclist narrowly avoids being crushed by an overturning goods lorry. The fact he was daft enough to stay his vehicle on a pedestrian crossing was bad enough, but he nearly lost his life. It’s not a nice way to go either.
