I look forward to viewing the traffic flow around the Arc de Triomphe when driverless vehicle are the norm. It's already highly entertaining (as a pedestrian innocent bystander).

Factually - as we seem to be discovering in aviation - as automation moves in, human skills become rusty and may even totally desert whoever is at the controls (or steering wheel) it all turns to porridge. I'm already aware of one situation which could have turned out very badly when friend's expensive 4WD's automatic safety features and cruise control went their own ways, leaving him to go for the brakes to avert a potential catastrophe.
