I agree. If they open borders for everyone then there is no issue. The problem is that H-!B is only available for certain industries. No corporate executive would think of H-1Bing other corporate executives, therefore it is an artificial adjustment to the market.

If there was no profit, companies wouldn't feel a need to push this out before human capability and technology is ready. They would be willing to put money into making test sites where they can be tested safely. They would be embracing a set of government regulations that make this work between all vendors. As it turns out, Uber is just doing this so they don't have to pay drivers $3/hour.

Well we can rule out medications because I was talking about using them as documented, which would be the prescription in the case of medications. So yeah, if you take a whole bottle you will die, I"m not sure how this furthers your point. I'd need you to cite evidence on number of chainsaws that injure people despite being used by the directions and being maintained as per the directions.

This is part of my point. Insurance companies will be coming after SOMEONE. If it is an automated car, it had better not be the passenger of said car since they cannot control the car. How many fender benders and scrapes are these automated car companies prepared to pay insurance companies for?

What I am saying has nothing to do with how many mistakes humans make over all. Here is what I am trying to say, if automated cars are only as good as the average human, then how do you prevent them from being more risky for half the humans out there who are safer drivers? Furthermore, how will they be compensated when the automated car gets into an accident, knowing that they probably wouldn't have gotten into an accident without automation?
