Are You Ready For The Self-Driving Google Car? Me, I'm not so sure... (video)

So when I first heard of the self-driving Google car, I envisioned a slow-moving car, carefully navigating a course using a built-in pre-programmed app. And then I watched this video, with its GPS-control and gut-wrenching screeching tires and I realized... I'm not ready for this.

Seriously, if a computer is driving the car, I'm not too sure how comfortable I would be with screeching tires. I know there are probably all sorts of arguments about how computers are better than people in terms of reaction time... but I still have this paranoia of my car rebooting in the middle of making some critical move on the road. I'm just not ready for this type of tech. Are you?
