Should your self-driving car kill you to save others?

    Good question Plasma Inferno. I predict a future where all cars are self-driving, putting an end to speeding etc., except the police force which will still have manually driven automobiles...

    I would have thought that pretty obvious... People will always use the cars that would protect their lives first.

    So there would have to be legislation to force the car industry to only produce anything different in this respect.

    Me, I don't see why the car's passengers' lives should come last. Instead, driverless cars should try to save the maximum number of lives, irrespective of where they are.

    But then again, it's passengers who choose to use a car at all and they have to know the inherent risk involved, so they should assume all the risk. So, there would have to be legislation to force the issue. Aren't legislators mostly car users? Good luck.
