Possibly the wrong thread, buddy. This really fits in the millennial discussion aimed at abrogating responsibility for anything that could possibly go wrong...see Murphy's law.
We've got a Governor right now standing in a deep hole leaning on a worn out shovel blaming the predicament on everybody else.

I hope one of the new Nannies keeps all minivans and SUV's in the right hand lane.

This will be the beginning of our transportation downfall... Maybe it's already started and this will push it over the brink...
At some point the rider will completely lose the ability to operate a motor vehicle...
Imagine the first blackout started from our feeble power grid that shuts down all communication during rush hour traffic...
I'll be one of the few still driving my 2009 completely "manual" MINI in a sea of helpless autonomous pods with freaked out occupants.... I'll be what will be called "Going Rogue", and lovin it.....

Waiting for the first incident resulting in injury or worse that can be attributed to failure of the autonomous control or from a programming error and then the subsequent mandatory 'Do not operate the vehicle' order and/or recall.

Google, Fiat ink deal to make 100 self-driving minivans

Google and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said Tuesday they will collaborate to combine the tech giant’s self-driving car technology into 100 Pacifica minivans, giving the automaker a high-profile partner that could help it catch up to competitors.

For Google, the vehicles will be used to turbocharge its 7-year-old autonomous car program. For FCA, the agreement provides a technological crash course in what it takes to transform a standard vehicle into an autonomous one.

What this? They got their hands on the last 100 wanted mini vans ever to be produced. Or perhaps some one said: please take them

I've been to a lot of factories that had autonomous vehicles at the same time as driven vehicles. They didn't last very long.

The Cali law past recently says that if one is in a wreck the manufacturer is responsible. So here is one of big rich google's cars one the road and I need a new car or even just some work done. Stop fast in front of it, pull out in front of it, your choice, google pays. You know it will happen. Lawyers will have a field day making money on it.

Unless Google adds cameras to all their vehicles (and you know they will).... If they can show the wreck wasn't caused by them their attorneys will get involved and fight it... Hell, they will make use of all those autonomous cars with 360 cameras to automatically update Google maps / Street view in real time....

And eliminate the expense of these guys.... You will be workin for Google on your way to pick up milk and a loaf of bread...
