I think "self-driving cars will often be safer than humans, but will still need to ask humans for help" is something most of us will agree with. But it's not the same as "self-driving cars are much safer than human drivers", which is what the industry wants us to hear (even if they don't say it outright). The confusion over these two concepts is the crux of what's wrong with the way the technology is being implemented.
