A typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/5th of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people.

@kohn I'm kind of scared to find out what the 5% of accidents not caused by human error were caused by... malevolent robots?

@technomancy @kohn crashes caused by eg the breaks failing are generally not considered human error i think?

@Satsuma @kohn sure, but 5% seems like a really high rate for mechanical failure

@technomancy @kohn yeah hopefully there are some other categories of no fault crashes also included in there


@Satsuma @technomancy @kohn apart from things like crazy weather and such, 5% of crashes being caused by cars falling apart doesn't strike me as *that* outrageous - there's some pretty shitty cars on the road.
