Why I want autonomous cars

In 2005 2.9 million people were injured and 42,636 people killed in the US from automotive crashes. About 115 people die every day in vehicle crashes in the United States -- one death every 13 minutes.

Given how much scofflaw driving I see I would much rather trust a machine that other humans. Every intersection I see drivers cutting corners, every commute I see hordes of drivers who don't yeild right of way, I see speeding basically all the time, everywhere. I see lots of aggressive, dangerous driving as well. Drivers are nearly universally scofflaws and almost all drive unsafely.
