Sounds like you will be one of the first to visit a mandatory environmental reeeducation camp

The problem is that there are morons that buy them not realising that in some cases they are essentially flying a lawnmower with no blade guards. I fly RC helicopters and fly them only on my 60 acre block. The injuries these can cause are horrific and their have been several part and full decapitations. Look at this thread to see some of the fun and games.

I doubt tattletale functionality will be added to driverless systems

What sort of shangri-lala land do you live in? I can see driverless cars deciding to lock the doors and deliver people to a police station or gaol based on specific parameters. To think that they wont be watching, listening and analysing every fucking thing going on in and around them and reporting it all to the central repository is naive to the extreme.
