It seems it is just a matter of time before a major accident happens near you these days. 4 young adults were killed in this accident last weekend between a taxi and a car full of teenagers and every time it makes me think, would that have happened in a self drive car?

The Leeds ring road has several section which are dual carriage way therefore you can reach 70 mph on these sections. But where it passes residential areas the limit is reduced to 40 mph. The accident location has several side streets some of which have poor sight lines as the road bends here.
In my opinion, putting cameras to catch people speeding is fine but until self drive cars are introduced on mass we will continue to read about tragic accidents like this.
