> Will AVs have the programming for this? Or for similar cases (merging in turn when a lane ends, letting people pull out, moving to another lane to let people join the motorway etc.)?

A few days ago I would have gone "aaargggh" and sarcastically retorted with a "why on earth do you think that such common driving scenarios wouldn't be considered in the design?"

But then we heard about the self-driving shuttle bus crash in the US where the developers seem to have forgotten about that common driving scenario: sound the bloody horn when a truck starts reversing into you!!
