Yeah... seems like we need this right freaking NOW. If the car behind was also able to apply brakes, probably none of these would have happened.

The cars are extremely overly cautious and they do stuff like wait 10 seconds after the light turns green before starting and limit to 25 mph in residential and stop 25 feet before a pedestrian etc. I will bet there will be a lot more of these accidents until the cars start driving more confidently

Exactly these accidents sound like the kind of thing that happens to hesitant drivers.

1.5 seconds is not ten but it might feel that way to shitty impatient drivers.

You don't think this is happening because people aren't keeping proper distance?

That's just blatantly false. There are lights that don't even last for 15 seconds.

As a motorcyclist I would prefer sharing the road with autonomous vehicles rather than human beings. Let's roll this out and go live ASAP.

Don't you worry that this will lead to restriction or a ban of motorcycles? I mean the vast majority of proponents of self driving cars I hear are pushing to ban manual driving on public roads, not make it an option.

What leads you to believe that if the ability to manually operate a car is taken away, that they'll somehow overlook motorcycles?

Yes. So much this. On the other hand, I do worry about legislation preventing all manual driving because there are a lot less accidents with self-driving vehicles. Even if it is possible to make self-driving motorcycles, which I doubt, who would want one? Could be the end of bikes on the road. I REALLY hope I'm wrong in this.
