speeding.
drunk driving
distracted driving (texting, eating, getting a handjob, etc)
talking on a cell phone
bad weather
trying to beat the red light.
falling asleep

which of those is a problem for autonomous cars?
Bad weather I suppose, at this point. Has it been tested in the snow? In a blizzard?
