Only when I want to see the AV car rear-ended by the non-AV car.

But after years of trying to get motorists to check their blind spots, many still don't. And bicycles & bikers tend to suffer for that. Current AV's don't seem to offer much in the way of improvement as they have hard configured blind spots with their sensing. Legal & political wrangling over liability between owner/driver/AV designer needs to happen before too many AV's hit the roads. We're IT types, we know that to err is human and to really FUBAR, we need a safe/secure system.
