Autonomous cars are safer

"By funding the publicity campaign showing how driverless cars are viable and safe, Google is helping to create demand for software it will almost certainly look to license in the future."

Since autonomous cars are being talked about many people seem to have become in a state of illusion mistakenly believing that cars driven by humans are safer than self-driven cars. The truth is, as the stats show every year, that humans cause plenty of annual deaths on the road. 

Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day, according to annual global road crash startistics. Those road crashes are caused by human error.
