What happens when it goes faulty.
I still enjoy driving and being in control.
It's a numbers game. Eventually all road vehicles will be autonomous (AV) and yes there will be occasional faults. From the industry perspective, the objective is that the instances of injuries and fatalities will be significantly lower than those currently caused by incompetent, drugged, drunk, reckless drivers.
That sounds good to me. Who would not want that?

More so in the UK where stoppages are more frequent.
Having driven many 100,000's miles on UK motorways the statement about frequent stoppages is incorrect. Can't remember the last time we were held up on UK motorways.
have you ever driven on the M25, M4, M3 or M27?

Level 3 signifies that the person at the wheel is not driving when the automated systems are engaged, but can step in at any time and must take over at the system's request.
So someone is watching a film or using a cell phone and they must then take over - and in a fraction of a second the driver has to make a decision. Sorry but too late, pick up the pieces.
This is ridiculous.
If, and it is a big if, it all works what do drivers from countries that do not have the system do? A driving test?
