Do you have any evidence that self-driving cars are unsafe, or that human intervention has been necessary?

None at all, that's my only point. I'm extremely optimistic that automated cars will be safer than human drivers within the decade if they aren't already. It's not a very high bar to attain, really.

Their record so far is excellent, but the tests are still being done with professional drivers behind the wheel. We don't know what sort of weather conditions the cars have had to deal with, or how much the drivers have needed to intervene. Have they gone out in thunderstorms and blizzards and still have never needed driver intervention? It's possible, I don't know.

You can't drive on the road now without having a drivers license and insurance. You may call that a bubblewrap mentality that curtains your freedom and volition. You're free to have that opinion, I just want to be able to get from point a to point b without some idiot slamming into me. Reasonable restrictions to that end are fine by me.

First of all, I didn't say anything about shiny objects so I'm not sure what that's about. Second of all, I'm pretty sure that shiny objects in your periphery attracting your attention is basic human nature. Being aware of your surroundings has always been an important survival skill. It still is, especially when driving.

A black holes event horizon is a consequence of its massive gravitational field, so if you get that a wormhole should also have a massive gravitational field than the event horizon would follow from that.

And from my understanding, it's not the event horizon they are saying is smaller in the wormhole, it is the wormhole itself. So I think it is something like a difference in the tidal force, a more concentrated source of a gravitational field would have a stronger tidal force which can be detected.
