This may be the dumbest comment I've ever read on Slashdot, and I've been here for a while. The whole point of self driving cars is that they will have *better* judgement than us slow, panicky humans. There are something like 33,000 deaths per year in the US alone caused by traffic accidents. If letting our cars drive themselves can even half that, we've made a huge score.
