It is understandable that people would be resistant to the idea of handing over control to a computer. Fear and narcissism are powerful.
People as a whole suck at driving. They crash and die constantly. Anecdotal examples of Tesla FSD screwing up don't change that. Even if the technology isn't all the way there yet, it is beneficial when used as intended. When it is fully up to speed, less people will die per mile than do today. I would rather have a smaller chance of being killed by a computer programming failure than a greater chance of being killed by my own error - or more likely, that of someone else on the road. Neither of those options are comforting, but that's life (or will be soon enough).
Autopilot is currently a misleading name. If a vehicle operator chooses to defeat safety measures to take a nap in the back seat, blaming a name while ignoring the user manual is idiotic.
