Re: If a plane can do this, what happens to cars?

It is still claimed that we will soon have fully automatic driverless cars. These will be operating in a vastly more complicated environment, with far less time to sort out problems. And there will be far more of them. What are the chances that nothing like this will happen?

I can absolutely guarantee that something like this will happen with driverless cars just as I can guarantee that until we get drivers cars people will continue to die on the roads at a rate of over one million per year. To bring this post back on topic imagine the outcry if the airline industry killed a million people each year.
