Argument: Self Driving Cars


Jacob R., Writer

Self Driving Cars are the future. However, many people are skeptical. Below is an argument of how self driving cars could be beneficial.

My first argument of how Self Driving cars could be beneficial. First, they are safer. Self driving cars are way more safe than normal cars. Here is why. The most common ways of car accidents are human mistakes, runny red lights, not seeing someone, texting, the list goes on. If we allow self driving cars this will reduce the amount of car crashes drastically and make it safer for other people on the road. We’d like to give you some facts. According to the Association For Safe International Road Travel, “Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44.” This is a huge number! Self driving cars will reduce this so much, the roads would be so much safer. The clear impact is that self driving cars are very safe in comparison to normal cars and their drivers.


My second argument is that self driving cars will help transport the elderly, the blind, the disabled, and children. Because you don’t need to actually drive a self driving car, people that are unable to do that, now can. It would be easier to take your kids to school and make it easier to transport elderly, blind, and disabled. Let me explain. There are many people in this world who can’t transport themselves, because of physical issues or anything else. Instead of needing someone who is able to drive to transport these people they can just do it themselves. Our evidence is there are many people who can’t drive and need other people to take time out of their lives to help others. This is important because this would help the people who can’t drive and it would be very beneficial to them.
