"This is precisely why you don't want a "self-driving" car, by the way. Not that you can't make a self-driving car. But one that tries to be human to self-drive is a dangerous and unreliable beast."
The problem with this example is that the HUMAN is a PROVEN dangerous and unreliable beast, given the spate of traffic accidents reported in the news everyday. Not to mention the human fallibilities of fatigue, drug inducement, anger, etc. and you've just set a very low bar.
