It's always gonna be sketchy until all vehicles are aided by some kind of self-driving system.

That will be a loooong time though, enough that there will be a lets-drive-with-these-humans programming as the major successful implementation of self driving. Plus you'll always have pedestrians, cyclists, random acts of god... :)

Self driving cars that need an "operator" are outright dangerous. Competent driving requires the driver's attention, operating a highly "driver assisted" (things like lane or distance assist, NOT lane or distance warnings or other safety measures like ABS), or even "self driving" vehicle is reinforcing the opposite. 

 

So if you want to work on something work on full autonomy, not an intermediate bodge.

True, but you gotta start somewhere. This might be the best way to get to that point where it's fully automated. They get to collect all that data that will eventually make it happen.
