Autopilot is a very latest feature in cars that is being currently provided by two manufacturers only – Tesla and BMW. In comparison to BMW, Tesla’s autopilot mode is said to be a very well self-driving hardware that tends to drive even better than the human operators in some of the situations.
This feature is very good for customers who work at a long distance and have hours of drive to reach, which turns exhausting. However, it must be understood that currently none of the insurance providers are covering “autopilot accidents” in their insurance policies. Therefore, any accidents that occur while the car is being driven in the autopilot mode, the expenses are to be borne by the owner themselves, completely.
This is a major drawback for the moment. The autopilot mode is a very well equipped software with exceptional driving skills, but if the accident takes place due to the mistake of the other driver, which is quite possible for numerous reasons (one being drunk driving), the accident that takes place to whatever degree will fall into the owner’s pocket.
The miscellaneous expenses such as car accidents, are very heavy on the pockets, especially in Florida, due to which for the time being consumers are better off sticking to the normally driven cars unless they have a budget to be prepared for the ups and downs that might be occurring.
