There are numerous stories being written on self-driving vehicles today that are pretty impressive, and to be honest, almost a bit overwhelming.


It sometimes seems that people believe self-driving vehicles are destined to happen, as if there exists some natural, inevitable, evolutionary force, always driving technology forward. I fear there is no such force.


A great deal of the media’s coverage of self-driving vehicles these days focuses on the companies behind their development. This includes new players in the arena such as Google, Tesla, and Uber; as well as traditional auto manufactures such as GM and its Super Drive product.


Is a framework really necessary to integrate safety into the transportation
planning process?
