    New training rules

    I think that from now on, everybody that sells any type of equipment, ie lawn mowers,chain saws, fork lifts, can openers, toasters, cars & trucks, etc should be fully responsible for the training of the operators of same, and be responsible for any type of harm caused by the use or operation of these items, regardless of the capabilities of the operators of same.

    • Surgeons are amongst the most highly trained professions. While a few are incompetent, there are not very many who are. Still, they are human and humans make mistakes sometimes....robot assisted or not. The robots are not going to be able to prevent human error for some years yet.

      Including cars. Think of the growth industry. A government trainer training every driver on the road. With recertifications (6 week original course length, and annual 1 week refresher), we should be able to put 1-2 million people back to work.
