AVs & Public Health

Autonomous vehicles prevent accidents in many cases, but if there are problems with the sensors, it can endanger the lives of other people and even the passengers of the car. Car passengers may refuse from closing seat belts due to overconfidence in autonomous vehicles, which is very dangerous. Autonomous vehicles can also encourage people to use private vehicles from public transportation, walking and cycling, which can lead to air pollution, greenhouse gases, noise pollution, and so on.
