Better than the next guy
It's been just a week since a driver ran a stop sign and boom. A second earlier and our car would have done serious damage to his passenger. A second later and his car would have killed me, likely outright.
There are any number of checks that would have stopped this. Like there was a stop sign. The street he was trying to cross (the witness said "blow thru") is so major just reference to a map would've said nuh-unh. The speed he was going on that side street was at *least* double posted or reasonable. The angle that street had to the intersection prevented seeing a whole direction of traffic. And at that time of day the odds that any 4-second period wouldn't have a car crossing is pretty low.
Also, computers don't have mid-life crises causing 50-year-olds to drive like 15-year-olds.
Count me as positive that automatic driving has got to be better than my fellow drivers. Even now. If I could ask his passenger I think that'd be another 'yea' vote.
