Why? How many people do cyclists kill?
What makes self driving superior is that it handles cyclists and pedestrians with ease and makes the correct allowances all the time without getting narked or knocking you off because "you're in the middle of the road".

I'm sure you don't.
How many miles do you do a year? How many in rush hour on the roads joining two 'city' centres together (and including said city centres)?
I do in excess of 10k and I've no shortage of video footage that shows event where had I not taken evasive action there'd have been a collision.
Lets take a look at what's happened on the roads - ignoring the 3 adults and a 1 year old killed by some monkeys in a car in Sheffield, locally this morning we have a 17 year old cyclist killed in a hit and run by a suspected drunk driver who then crashed a second time not long after, we also have an 8 year old girl also killed this morning with the driver arrested on suspicion of death by dangerous driving, last night we have a woman killed and a man seriously injured by a man arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving (and drink driving).
And that's just local!
There are 28,000 hit and runs reported each year.
Let that sink in. Twenty eight thousand...
So am I supposed to accept that level of carnage just because it's done by my fellow monkeys and ignore any possibility of reducing it?
