4 injured, 1 dead in 3-car California crash

The rules of the road are there for a reason, and breaking them can lead to a chain reaction that can cause an accident and lead to injuries and death. That is allegedly what happened west of Woodland, California, where a three-vehicle collision injured four of the occupants of the vehicles and killed another.

From Silicon Valley down through Southern California, the state has been a leader in advancing the notion of fully self-driving cars on American roads to improve safety and reduce accidents.

Are some self-driving cars safer than others?

While self-driving cars are taking slow, steady steps toward prominence on California roadways, not everyone believes that widespread adoption of the technology is in the public's best interest. According to Forbes, drivers in San Francisco have sometimes reacted violently to the presence of autonomous cars on their city streets, and even those who are able to curb their road rage still express some hesitation. A nationwide study indicates that a slim majority of Americans, only 52 percent, feel confident that safety advances in self-driving technology may one day lead them to consider an autonomous vehicle as a replacement for a conventional one.

That is not necessarily the truth, however. California is home to many mountains and you might want to go for a morning bike ride along the coast and then head up to the mountain for an afternoon of skiing, for example.
