I would be astounded if a human driver could match the safety of a driverless car.
But how would these folks cope with driverless cars? Would the car prevent such buffoonery?
This is a main A road which has a single lane bridge. I round the bend to discover a RR which appears to have crossed the bridge and is now reversing back on to it. On seeing me he pulls forward to let me cross and then again reverses. I conclude it has dropped off a passenger (seen right with camera in hand) to take a photograph of the car once it has reversed and stopped on the bridge.
Lovely day for such pics too!
