I am horrified at these answers. OMG. Really? Take a look at https://jalopnik.com/5828101/this-is-googles-first...
#1 - autonomous vehicles should be smart enough to sacrifice its own passengers to save other people in an imminent crash
#2 - The biggest battle in auto safety today involves keeping drivers focused on driving. Google's self-driving car seems like the ultimate distracted driving machine.
#3 - if the operators of Google's self-driving cars retain all legal responsibility, simply turning the system on would be seen in court as a sign they weren't paying attention.
#4 - SW hacking. Used as a car bomb without the suicide driver. SW glitches. Cost of repair of all these sensors if in a minor fender bender would probably total the car and insurance rates go up.
#5 The one answer is correct: would have to be 100% driverless. That would mean only the elite will have these and all other will be on driverless busses. To me this is the ultimate in class warfare. Would bicycles be allowed on the road at all?
