Swerv or Stay?
Recently driving through the deserts of Utah in between crossroads with nobody in sight my wife and I came across a horrific accident. A camper van had plowed into a guardrail protecting a shallow wash. The camper van was completely demolished. Pieces of wreckage were all over the highway and a well used plush love seat was upright on the center line.
Amazingly two truckers had stopped and were attending to the passengers and were directing traffic and placing hazard flares on the road. The code of the highway was in effect. Helping your fellow man in need.
Would driverless cars and trucks make a decision to stop and be of assistance upon arriving at at a crash scene? Would they call in for help? Would they unlock to provide shelter? Would they provide medical supplies, food and water?
Or, would they just keep driving down the highway…
