You sound like the people from the early 1900s who said cars were too dangerous and would be a menace to society. We're still in the "buggy whip holder" stage, where people don't actually know what they want or need from this technology.

This may interest you:

Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44. Road traffic crashes rank as the 9th leading cause of death.

It's not the cars that are dangerous though. It's the people driving them. So the more humans can rely on computer systems – from traffic lights to back up cameras, to blindspot / lane departure/ forward collision warnings — the safer cars can be.
