Understanding autonomous vehicles

While most residents in Kentucky may have yet to share the road with a fully autonomous vehicle, they should be aware that such a day will come. However, it is also important to understand that there is not just one type of autonomous car. Vehicle automation actually comes in six different levels. 

Road rage increases your risk for personal injury

Every time you navigate Kentucky roadways, you can expect to share the road with other travelers. While you might be lucky enough to enjoy a road trip or two with little to no traffic jams, it's far more common to encounter other vehicles on the road than to have the highway to yourself. While your own driving skills and habits might be stellar, there's no telling how nearby motorists will act.

Consumers unsure about autonomous vehicles

Most people in Kentucky may not have seen many self-driving cars on the roads in their cities but they have likely seen and heard multiple reports about the testing and development of these vehicles. Outside of the Silicon Valley bubble, it is interesting to take a look at just how most Americans are perceiving this advancing technology. Improved safety is touted as a primary reason for the development of autonomous vehicles yet recent research indicates that consumers aren't quite so confident about their safety in them.

Do property owners owe a duty of care to visitors?

Whenever you enter on to another's property in Covington, your likely expectation is that the property is responsible for your safety while you are there. Of course, you are still expected to exercise sound judgment and avoid any reckless behavior (as such negligence might absolve the property owner of liability even if you are injured while on their land). Yet generally speaking, it may be reasonable to expect that a property owner has prepared their land in such a way that it presents no danger to visitors.
