Arguing there is a certain set of conditions (road surfaces, types of impacts) where humans are superior will be like saying there are certain conditions where autopilots on planes or AIs on chess computers can be flawed.

Speaking for myself, I'm not "distraught" about the possibility of driverless cars however I've been around too long for airy, arm-waving faith that technology can do anything.

The aircraft autopilot is a far different piece of technology with a vastly lower level of complexity.
