Plus, the more capable the system is, the more dangerous will be the situations where it decides it can't cope and tries to hand back control to the driver.

And because the driver has got used to a capable autopilot system doing all the work, they'll be quite happily eating a bagel rather than paying the close attention to the road that they'd need to save themselves.
