Hunter Insurance WHATS DRIVING AUTONOMOUS CARS? While the United States had the lowest vehicular death rates of all industrialized nations until the 1980s, it now ranks near the bottom. As traf c deaths have continued to decline in other countries, ours have failed to keep pace. If they had, its estimated that thered be 10,000-20,000 fewer deaths per year on American roads. Even after a general decline in vehicular fatalities, traf c deaths ticked upward in 2015 and 2016, largely due to distracted driving. These statistics have led many safety and auto experts to conclude that it may be best to take steering wheels out of drivers hands. Researchers estimate that autonomous vehicles are just 10% better than current drivers would save 500,000 lives over three decades. Safer cars dont automatically mean lower insurance premiums. Not while we are in a transition period. Over the long term, they will come down, but only as safety feature technology becomes wide spread and as its unit costs come down. At HUNTER INSURANCE, INC., we are able to offer you superior coverage at a competitive price. Whether its personal or business, we create insurance programs for the individual customer. To learn, please call 769-9500, or visit our agents at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. NOTE: It is still not entirely clear how fault for auto accidents will be determined when self-driving cars are on the road.
