Are AVs safe?

In the years to come, AVs are expected to be safer than conventional vehicles. Human error is the cause around 90 per cent of road deaths and injuries, so if we can help safely transition to driverless vehicles sooner, hundreds of Australian lives could be saved, and thousands of serious injuries prevented.

However, increasing automation does also raise many considerations which need to be explored and managed to safely transition to more widespread operation of AVs on our roads.
