I am somewhat reassured knowing that my DGC has a slightly lower death rate than my Corolla (which has a rate of 54 vs 41 for the DGC). Check out some of the numbers for cars I see tons of around here ie: Honda Civic.As someone else pointed out later in the thread, the 41 rate is only just slightly worse than the average:

So they say.Automation can help reduce the number of crashes on our roads. Government data identifies driver behavior or error as a factor in 94 percent of crashes, and self-driving vehicles can help reduce driver error. Higher levels of autonomy have the potential to reduce risky and dangerous driver behaviors.

If your friend could see better without his helmet he needed a different helmet! And no one has ever got up in the morning and said, "today I intend to go out and have a wreck".I had a motorcycle riding friend who would not wear a helmet. I asked him why since helmets protect you better if you wreck it. He said he could see better without the helmet so he rode more safely and didn't intend to wreck. I don't ride motorcycles and am not advocating riding without a helmet, but some things have to be about personal choice. I have driven a Grand Caravan for quite a few miles and other vehicles for a lot of miles. I never had an accident where anyone's life was in danger. That doesn't mean that could not happen. I choose not to worry about things just because they could happen.
