IMO they've been well over-hyped and are a lot further off in the future than enthusiasts would have you believe.

probably a good idea in principle... but the potential liability is enormous, afaict advanced AI can do some impressive things but also often does things that are unexpected by humans - which isn't ideal on roads that will have to be shared with human drivers, pedestrians and cyclists (and horses, skateboarders, mobility scooter users)

they would barely work on motorways, they would kill many people on B roads. Again the technology is probably at least a century away from being as good as a human

Tbh I'm waiting to see autonomous (or semi-autonomous) motorcycles.

Plenty of scope for bikes which can regulate speed/gear; scan the road ahead and make adjustments for bends etc
