How long until a group of high frat bros hijack a self-driving Pizza Hut car?

^That's the problem with sooo much of this tech stuff. The people making it can only visualize how a calm 25-40 year old gentrifide urban dweller or suburbanite would use it. No teens, no kids, no old people, nobody in rural areas, nobody in the 'hood, nobody who is in poverty etc. When put into practice techies have no idea how the Rest of Life's will use it... or not use it at all.

Well unfortunately all of these driverless-everything vehicles will need tons of cameras inside and out to record vandalism.  But I think people will figure out how to make them "blind"...i.e. wait for one to pass under an overpass, then drop a tarp on it.  The thing will stop and then you can break into it.

Or they'll just figure out how to hack them.
