Imagine trying to escape a forest fire, but your self driving car slows down to 15 mph in every school zone and comes to a full stop at every red light while the fire is racing towards you.

Imagine rushing to the hospital in an emergency but then your self driving car stops for a long red light at an empty intersection.

Exactly, you lose all control.

If we had a fully driverless system where every car knows the location of every other car, there would be no need for speed limits or stops at intersections. So in an ideal futurist scenario you could actually escape much faster.

As far as getting robbed, I imagine something a little like this:

The super dark episodes are my favorite episodes. That was one such episode.

Imagine a fully self driving car without a steering wheel being able to account for easily imagined emergencies. Your point is valid, but I doubt the troublesome scenarios would be the ones that first come to mind. But I suppose you never know. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

The issue isn’t forest fires; it’s when the cops are looking for a suspect in a ten block radius of where you are and decide to shut down all traffic in order to prevent him from escaping. Things like that. Somebody WILL have the ability to turn off the cars.

Alright so for certain circumstances like wildfires I could see them having emergency settings, or some system in place. What about for Niggers? Honestly. Let's just leave the whole black thing out of it, there are white scum bags too and I can guarantee you scumbags of all skin colors will take part in it.
