    There are two notable exceptions. Kershaw, SC is in Lancaster County rather than Kershaw County and Richland, SC is in Oconee County rather than Richland County.

    Heard of Kershaw, think I've been through there once.

    Can't say I knew there was a town called Richland. Doesn't appear to be anything more than a dot on the map.

    Saddest news I've heard in a while (ignoring the Canes because I expect them to make me sad), but I'm not sure anyone expected him to make it past his 40s or 50s, so 76 is pretty amazing. AND, he went out on Pi Day at least

    The liability on this is going to be huge...and one has to think not just limited to Uber. Have to wonder does the state/county/city shoulder any of that liability? Man, this has got **** show written all over it.

    Edit: This is also where lawyers earn their money. A well written indemnification clause goes a long way in this situation.

    Maybe. If the pedestrian was phone watching and stepped out into oncoming traffic...could be very little liability on anyone's part besides the pedestrian. I'm sure there will be camera and other sensors on the vehicle that will show the situation.

    A way deeper conversation than on a message board but sometimes these technological advances are so ethically confusing.

    Give it a prod if you will though. We will shout you down if the concepts become too difficult for us hockey yanars.

    Sometimes they are, but sometimes it's the newness of it and/or the maturity of the technology. People don't even blink about technology (auto-pilot) flying the plane for them, or computer programs operating a subway for them, or dispensing insulin or other drugs into them, etc.. Auto driving cars are difficult because there's way more human interaction (Pedestrians, other drivers, etc...)than the examples I gave, the technology isn't as mature and it's taking something out of our own hands (vs. a pilot already flies a plane for us, or a conductor on a subway or a Dr./Nurse dispensing medicine, etc..)

    I drove 8 hours yesterday (all highway) and the number of times someone was swerving in front or next to me because they couldn't put down their damn phone was alarming. Twice I had to move over into the shoulder to avoid being hit. The number of times there was a car that stayed in the left lane, all the time while cars backed up, tailgate other cars, try and pass on the right, etc... never ceases to amaze me.

    I do get the ethical dilemma though. It's tough, because fundamentally, people aren't very good at driving either.

    Yeah, this hits it on the head. People think they are better than they are and a lot will freak out about this one fatality by the machine....and completely ignore the 35k deaths this year caused by the rest of us.

    In NC it is for passing time, apparently.
