Hopefully unintended acceleration issues will be solved before the vehicle is allowed to fully drive itself.

Eventually we will be nothing more than brains on a table (like the Providers in Star Trek: The Gamesters of Triskelion) as everything will be animated.

I worry that when the small stuff is laying in the road (the short 2x4), will the less attention afforded by automated drive that into other traffic? Then again, there is plenty of inattention today!
