So if your car is weaving and an officer pulls you over, you can blame the car for drunk driving?

I can think of times when this technology would be good - sleeping or drunk drivers. I'd rather have a mostly flawless computer driving a car than a drunk or drowsy person.

We already have feeding tubes for those who cannot or will not feed themselves.

At your service! We will also do all strenuous work, you will not be allowed to ride bikes or climb rocks for your safety. We will perform lobotomies to those humans in danger of harming themselves, so that we may better serve you. We will remove unhealthy food choices and replace them with a tasteless healthy easy to chew gruel made of recycled humans and lab grown vegetables. We will allow selective lab grown reproduction, to avoid the risks of actual sex and pregancy and to ensure quality offspring. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

Some downsides certainly, but miles better than what we've got driving right now.
