NHTSA reports record number of auto recalls in 2015

The Perrigo Company, a manufacturer of over-the-counter medications, is recalling its children's guaifenesin grape liquid and children's guaifenesin DM cherry liquid cough syrup.

A statement from the company's CEO said that there had been no reports of any adverse events, but that the recall was still the right thing to do.

Although there have been no problems reported whatsoever of dangerous driving, nor have there been any fatalities or injuries in any accident relating to self driving cars, this does not mean that there have been no accidents. As a matter of fact, reports indicate that self-driving cars seem to get into accidents approximately twice the rate of cars with drivers.
