A November 20 article on Automotive News looks at the history of the long imagined and heretofore elusive development of a feasible flying car. It also explores the potential of ride-sharing giant Uber developing a line of flying taxis and, in partnership with NASA, a new air-traffic control system. Los Angeles-based personal injury law firm Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says that it will definitely be a challenge to deal with the countless safety concerns associated with flying cars which, after all, are cars and small aircraft, currently the two most dangerous forms of transpiration. The firm adds, however, that whether or not flying cars ever actually appear, a host of new innovations related to transportation are very definitely on the way. It adds that it makes sense for manufacturers and end-users, both individual and corporate, to exercise caution and think through the possible impacts of these advances.
The personal injury law firm notes that recent changes in personal computing technology, such as the growing ubiquity and power of smart phones, have already impacted the field of traffic safety in a largely negative way. Specifically, distracted driving has become more of an issue as smart phone users find themselves tempted to respond to texts, fix problems with apps, and engage in other extremely dangerous behavior while driving, says Legal Defenders. The legal specialists add that the law of unintended consequences always arises with new technologies, and when they interact with vehicles, the stakes tend to rise considerably.
The apparently all but inevitable arrival of some kind of self-driving automotive technology is another example, says Legal Defenders. While it’s true that, in theory, robotic drivers will be far superior to human drivers in terms of safety, since they won’t be subject to distractions or momentary lapses of judgement, and they will never be tired or impaired by a substance, the firm says that any number of as yet…
