If planes carrying hundreds of passengers can take off and land on autopilot and fly from place to place, and fighter planes can engage other planes at Mach 3 before landing on an aircraft carrier, I reckon driving you to Asda is not exactly outside the realms of possibility.
There is absolutely no reason on the technical side that cars can't drive at least as well as humans, even amongst other human driven cars. It may well require a lot more work to figure out, but there's nothing magical about your brain that can't be reproduced.
Once upon a time the idea that a phone could beat a grandmaster at chess would have been laughable.
