Mercedes-Benz will take responsibility for accidents with self-driving cars

The company said that if the driver fails to follow the instructions given by the car, then the driver will be held liable for the damages. The company said that level-3 self-driving cars are not fully automatic, so the driver has to be fully alert while using this technology. While using this technique, many times the driver is instructed to control the car himself, if the driver does not do this then he will be held responsible in case of an accident.
