I saw some BMWs and Mercedes that already ship with anti skip software... So I think it is safer to have the car drive than the humans... Especially on ice.

I am rethinking self-driving cars after spending the holidays in Spokane
Washington. It has been snowing a lot up here. It is an order of magnitude
more difficult to drive in snowy and icy conditions. So it makes sense to
me why self-drivers have been legalized in states where it doesn't snow
much. I don't really think the technology is ready for winter driving in
the rest of the world.
On the other hand, it might be just the opposite: snow and ice impairs
humans more than it does software. If that is the case, then perhaps the
safety of a self-driver is comparable to a human on a clean dry road, but a
factor of 3 safer in icy conditions.
