To many possibles that makes me only go with human control only. And what if someone plows into my vehicle and injure or death occurs ? I sue the owner, the program company, the auto maker, Who ? How long will this drag out in court while it generates through the courts ?
I will base this on cases that have happened already, with tesla and uber, and my assumptions

If an accident or death occurs - blame the driver. They signed that they must be ready to take over at any time.
If someone spams in and make changes - no driving capabilities are accessible via remote systems only the local system. Use hackatons to prove it cant be done.
If fog in area - driver judgement call if safe, else take over.
If rain in area - driver judgement call if safe, else take over.
If sensor failure - critical sensor failure cause the system to stop, driver must take over
