ARE DRIVERLESS CARS TRULY AS SAFE AS WE THINK THEY ARE?

On March 19th, the first pedestrian death as a result of a driverless car occurred in Tempe, Arizona. Arizona has been a strong proponent of the driverless technology. It has quickly cut regulations and opened its public roads to driverless cars in an attempt to lure driverless car manufacturers such as Uber, Lyft and Waymo over its borders. Driverless cars have been praised as being safer than their human-operated counterparts. For instance, driverless cars take out the "distraction element" that often affects human drivers. One does not have to worry about a driverless car being distracted by a fluffy dog on the side of the road, or even worse, being under the influence of any intoxicating substance. Moreover, the driverless cars strictly adhere to the rules of the road. Driverless cars come to a complete stop at stop signs and when the traffic light turns "yellow," the driverless cars immediately slow down.

Woman sues Bayer for selling dangerous product after coma

Many Illinois residents rely on Alka-Seltzer to help eliminate their cold and cough symptoms, but one woman says that the medication caused such severe side effects that she was in a coma for 31 days. The victim, who purchased the dangerous product in January 2013, said she was seeking relief from her cold symptoms, so she took the Alka-Selzer product before going to bed. She says she developed a serious reaction that started with blisters in her mouth and led to a horrific coma and illness that left her with much of her skin missing.
