In the article “Are Driverless Cars A Good Idea” Amitai Bin-Nun supports the idea of driverless cars being a good idea while Ashley Nunes argues against it. Bin-Nun claims that driverless cars will help the environment by reducing road congestion, driving more efficiently, and reducing emissions. Driverless cars can help people who are disabled and older people who can’t drive safely. It can also help others who do not know how to drive. Bin-Nun claims that it can make the roads safer since, in 2018, more than 36,500 people have died. Nunes disagrees with the idea of driverless cars because machines are not perfect and they have flaws. They can make mistakes like humans. She wrote about how a 40-year-old man was killed by a driverless car when his car ran into a truck. She believes that we shouldn’t trust our cars to drive by themselves over our lives.
I think it can be nice having a driverless car because I know many situations when people drive back home late at night and they get sleepy which they can sleep behind the wheel. It can make the roads safer and avoid accidents. But I also do realize that machines are imperfect and we shouldn’t rely on them to have control. If they do make cars that are safe and make no mistakes then I would think that driverless cars are a good idea. Do you think that driverless cars are a good idea?Tags: Orange Cove High School self-driving cars technology
