And an autonomous car will be much better than you at calculating all the variables. It can look both ways, behind and ahead, nearly instantly calculate multiple closing speeds and decide the best outcome. It may decide getting rear ended is better, it may decide traveling all the way through the intersection is better.
The point is, you have to invoke bugs or failure to come up with a scenario where a human will be better at avoiding an accident than an autonomous car. Most humans are nearly oblivious to what's going on around them while they drive.
