In New York, autonomous cars may become a reality in the near future. Four states have allowed them to test drive on public roads. These states are California, Michigan, Nevada, and Florida. The limited test grounds are mainly due to the matter of who is liable if an autonomous car is responsible for an accident.
A pedestrian died and two others were injured in New York after a vehicle mounted the sidewalk following a two-car crash. The accident occurred around 6 p.m. in Queens on Oct. 6.
