    New jersy state is testing these cars, and they require a driver to seat behind the wheel at all times to take over the controls in the event of a technology failure or emergency

    Right, just like with airplanes, taking 95% of the control out of human hands is the easy part. It's that last 5% that will take some leaps of technology and faith.

    But with $75,000 plus in training, testing and licensing behind him/her. Not to mention the 1500 plus hours required to be a "fail-safe." :)

    Most commercial flying is not done in an aircraft with an autopilot exotic enough to remove the pilot.
