Self-Driving Concept Cars Becoming a Reality

How Might That Affect Safety, Insurance and Law Enforcement?

Concept cars are becoming reality. If you own a self-driving car in the future how will it affect your safety, your auto insurance, and state governments that depend on traffic citation revenue? These are all very important questions that are starting to become a growing concern for law enforcement and daily commuters. Did you know 800,000 drivers are pulled over every day?

Self-driving cars would virtually eliminate speeding infractions, moving violations, traffic control signal problems and several other hefty vehicle fines. These types of fines make up 54% of all traffic stops by law officers. Currently, speeding tickets account for $6 billion in annual fines to local law enforcement across the country. Self-driving cars can be programmed to obey speed limits and avoid distractions that human drivers regularly make while operating a vehicle. 94% of all of the car accidents are a result of human error. As stated in this infographic on How Self Driving Cars Impact Traffic Law Enforcement,  it is expected that by 2030, 1 in 4 cars will be self-driving and as a result, a 25% traffic ticket reduction in total.

It is important to know your general rights when being pulled over by an officer of the law. Self-driving cars will ultimately reduce the amount of law enforcement interaction while improving the overall safety of roadways.
