As a personal injury attorney I read a lot about how accidents happened and so I was just a bit curious about Lt. Joe Gonzalez’ work injury. Right after I read an investment report about mining trucks sold by Caterpillar being driverless I read about Lt. Gonzalez accident at the World Food Prize building at 100 Locust Street in Des Moines. It got me thinking about the people being injured by vehicles backing up with drivers and I had to wonder how such accidents would be prevented by driverless vehicles. After all if the technology is available to prevent this kind of accident with no driver, why isn’t it in place today?
If the technology is available to prevent backing up accidents with no driver, why isn't it standard equipment in today's delivery trucks?
