Not a hope in hell

Given the current state of development, true driverless cars (no manual control option) are a long way off. They might be ok for town/cities and motorways etc, but elsewhere?

A driverless car would never cope with the back roads and lanes where I live (Somerset/Devon border). Most of the roads are like dirt tracks with Farmer Giles on his tractor weaving around for added fun. Not to mention free ranging sheep, cattle and horses on some parts!!

Nothing wrong with having a "hands free" option, but manual control would be a must.
