Will cars actually in a self-driving mode of one form or the other be identified somehow so that other drivers can choose to stay away from them. What might be called something like a "software glitch" could be an accident to others involved and such an accident could be very harmful to humans.

Self-driving cars are already here in one form or another and they have arrived before the technology has matured and the legal system is far from prepared to do its part in the process. A serious accident could leave injured human parties tied up in litigation for years to come facing an adversary worth billions of dollars protecting interests worth billions of more dollars.

Given the chance, I would opt to get out of the way of a self-driving car.

Your self driving car will alert the passenger that there is an old human driver car in close proximity decades from now. Insurance on an old car a human drives will
be very expensive.

The many drivers with their heads buried in their cell phones are probably a far greater threat IMO.

I'm not aware of any way to tell if a car is self driving. Just avoid people that look like they aren't paying attention, regardless of who is really in control of the vehicle.

Why would you want to avoid the vehicles with the lower probability of causing a crash? Doesn't make any sense.

Here are the signs;

Woman (or man these days) applying makeup.
Reading newspaper or staring at smartphone.
Eating.
Staring at the person seated next to them.
Reaching towards the back or the floor for something.

All these cars are self driving but most donít have any tech installed.

Avoid cell phone users and those who drive aggressively. Self-Driving cars are more worried about you than you worry about them.

Whoever sits in and operates the self driving vehicle will be responsible, no different than someone texting or being distracted in some other way.

It will be interesting to see though, how the insurance companies handle true autonomous vehicles with no manual vehicle controls.

Eventually, there will be quite a few cars on the road that will be without drivers. It may take awhile, but it will happen.
So here's a thought: A dozen or more years ago, thugs were attacking tourists in Florida who were in rental cars. The cars had big rental stickers on them and the odds were very small that the tourists would have a loaded hand gun with them, so they were targeted.
So how long before these autonomous vehicles and semi trucks, driving in the middle of nowhere on their way to programmed destinations, get hijacked and have all the contents stolen?

each state should pass a law to require a self driving car to have self "driving running lights ON " after all with a reg driver you are required to have running light. why not a self driving car?

Can you hold one of these cars hostage by tossing a bag of leaves in front of it then another behind it? Even if the driver takes control will the car allow you to drive into something? Carjack city.
