Autonomous Cars- What’s the hold up?

On the way home recently, I got stuck in traffic due to 4 different car accidents. Ambulances were at 3 of them. My point? Humans are terrible drivers. In our cars, we hurt people, kill people, and cause damage all day every day. So, why are we so resistant to autonomous vehicles? While they are not perfect, on their worst day they are multitudes better than the best days for humans. Yet we resist them. For example such as requiring a hand on the steering wheel or reducing the percentage of autonomous cars in one area. Autonomous vehicles could reduce traffic, reduce pollution, save lives, reduce injury, reduce crowded streets, reduce travel time, and improve the travel experience. From that perspective, I just don’t see a downside.

Why are we so hesitant to go all in?
