How safe are autonomous cars?

You’d think that autonomous cars are safer than ordinary cars, but  striking accidents happened with autonomous cars.

I mean the Uber accident ,the Tesla  accidents and the fact that some of the batteries catched a huge fire due to the high concentration of energy.

The truth is that autonomous car are very safe, but  because of design  failures

they are suddenly dangerous. You have probably always heard that people make mistakes. That is exactly what I mean, people made  this and people programmed it. So you can see people’s mistakes back in the car’s behaviour.

There is always a chance of being  victim of an autonomous car accident, but by doing expiriments on the battery for example we could invent a cover that if the battery is starting  to catch a fire  the cover around it gets cold and the  damage to the battery is nearly nihil. I think that we are not ready for autonomous cars, true we can build an Tesla or an Uber model, but the main reason of production of autonomous  cars is that they have to increase the traffic safety.  We can build a new Tesla, but not a new human.
