Agreed, largest issue I see is human error on the road at the same time as computer precision. Not to mention affordability to the average consumer.

The bottom line is that they haven't got answers to how to ensure there are no security breaches. Until this is GUARANTEED, no one should even think about getting these cars. And since hackers are always one step ahead I can imagine that this will take a while..

Does this put an end to accidents ? Does this mean everyone will drink when they drive home ?

I think the purchase price of these "connected cars" will make it hard for average people to own something like this. I think that having driverless cars on the road with regular cars will more than likely cause a whole new realm of problems on the road.
