The administration's analysis of Autosteer was more positive about its capabilities. After analyzing mileage and airbag deployment data for Model S and Model X cars equipped with Autopilot, the NHTSA concluded that "the Tesla vehicles' crash rate dropped by almost 40 percent after Autosteer installation."

Wait, you mean to tell me a computer who doesn't get sleepy or distracted and doesn't need to pee is better at keeping an eye on the road than a human?

Say it isn't so.

Provided there is an accurate road database (there should be if you approve use of these cars ?) the autonomous cars should know about signs covered in snow better than a human driver does.

heck, if autonomous cars are pervasive then the AI can simply record the data about the roads from each car and submit variances to the database online, this will mean even if something is covered in snow it will know what is supposed to be there (stop sign, pot hole, construction, etc)
