On average we only utilize our cars for about 1.2 hours a day (5%). The rest of the time they remain idly parked
Futurologists predict that autonomous vehicles will be commonplace on roads in Europe and the US in just 15 years time. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in New York predicts self-driving cars will make up 75 precent of vehicles on the road by 2040.
in 2011 there were 5.3 million car crashes in the US, resulting in more than 2.2 million injuries and 32,000 deaths. Americans spend $230 billion annually to cover the costs of accidents, accounting for 2-3% of GDP.
“…and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
