Will the advent of automation lead to fewer truck accidents?

Technology is evolving at an impressive rate. Advancements that once seemed to be the stuff of science fiction have now become a part of our everyday lives. This includes advancements in the automotive industry. One of these advancements includes the development of "driverless" vehicles. People in Lexington may wonder whether autonomous semi-trucks in particular are a safer option than traditional vehicles.

Can a truck company be held liable for a truck accident?

Could self-driving trucks reduce truck accidents?

Many people in Lexington may have slowly noticed technology overtaking roles once held by people. For example, many grocery stores now have self check-out lines, where customers can scan, bag and pay for their items at a kiosk, rather than having these transactions handled by cashiers and baggers. Also, many jobs in the manufacturing industry that were once held by people have now been replaced with robotics. However, one group of researchers thinks, that within the next 10 years, automated technology could be installed on semi-trucks, replacing the role once held by truck drivers.
