Perfect Is Not the Enemy of Good

NHTSA administrator Mark Rosekind recently announced that automakers “can’t wait for perfect” in the release of self-driving technology, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Rosekind declined to address the May fatality involving Autopilot because NHTSA is investigating the incident. The agency’s main objective, he said, is to reduce traffic fatalities, which rose to 35,000 in 2015, an increase of 8% compared with 2014.

“We should be desperate for anything we can find to save people’s lives,” Mr. Rosekind said.

That strikes me as just right.
