This caused many Ford owners to be seriously injured or killed in accidences that would have otherwise been not been so serious. After the Ford Company realized that their car’s poorly designed model was causing unnecessary harm to its owners, they still choose to do nothing about it.

Then I will name the main organizations involved in the creation of driverless cars, and research what those companies are doing today.
