Congrats, you are officially overly PC.
Me? "PC"? You'd be surprised.
There are societally accepted standards of dress and you damn well know that.
America is a nation of prudes. That's why they have such words as "slutty" in the first place. Then they blame people for dressing in a certain way instead of leaving them alone, as any normal person would. It's almost halfway to Saudi Arabia.
If you have a human driving, you usually know who to blame.
Which, to me, is a horrible way of looking at things. If that were the only criterion, we could easily end up with ten times more car deaths simply because we're more comfortable with putting blame at people, even at the expense of lives.
If your car has shitty brakes you leave extra room. Good drivers realize that 'shitty brakes' is always relative.
Sounds to me like the solution to the problem in question - a computer could quickly periodically recompute the envelope of possible scenarios and never drive in the phase space into points from which it can't recover without hitting someone or something.
