You're all too skeptical of super-duper self-driving cars, apparently

Where do you get those figures? A combination of very DENSE and very SPARSE areas can both increase deaths (more targets with the former; less regularity and safety valves with the latter). What about people that drive more often and push themselves due to having to work two jobs per day just to pay the bills? Plus more roads can make daring drivers (especially the young with their bling cars) even more daring (think illegal street racing where outrunning the cops is considered part of the fun).
