Experts continue to warn that Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are NOT safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). There have been multiple reports about Teslas crashing and/or catching fire. Tesla owners have reported additional scary driving experiences as well (see 1, 2). Nevertheless, additional AVs – including trucks – are being tested so more of them can eventually be introduced on American roads.
From AP News:
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Waymo plans to open a new testing site in Ohio for its driverless autonomous vehicles that will focus on dense, urban areas, the company said Tuesday.
The new site being built at the Transportation Research Center near Columbus will allow the company to work on motion control testing, heavy-duty truck testing and testing in varying weather conditions, the company said.
Waymo’s main testing facility is near Merced, California. While it has conducted testing in several other states, this will be its first permanent location at a third-party test site.
It plans to open the new center in Ohio sometime in the middle of next year.
Waymo, a unit of Google parent Alphabet Inc., is seen by many as the leader in autonomous vehicle technology.
Others who aren’t psyched about AVs include hundreds of thousands of transportation industry employees who have lost their jobs to them or eventually will.
Of course this is no big deal to AV proponents including Verizon. In fact, the company emailed their subscribers that widespread 5G deployment is more about putting countless AVs on public roads and building privacy invasive, easily hackable, and radiation saturated “Smart Cities.”
In 2019, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they had NO independent scientific evidence that 5G is safe. American 5G opposition includes federal agencies and credible experts who warn it threatens jobs, national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2).
The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G deployment. Doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment. Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course exposure risks ARE NOT isolated to 5G. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population.
AVs (and everything that comes along with them) sound more annoying every day.
