The Self-Driving Car: So Long, Responsibility

So what, Lexus had its "self-parking" car. Big deal. A Chinese company has developed a car that, for all intents and purposes, drives itself. The car, a modified Hongqi HQ3, is able to stop at intersections, make turns, stay in between the lines (goodbye DUIs!) and, for good measure, complement the passengers. Right now, the car tops out at 37 mpg, but the company claims that it can go more than 90 mph before becoming confused. Wow, what happens when the car becomes confused?
