What makes you think the car would let you stop at the rest area in the first place?
Unless of course, they include in the upgrades a "bladder sensor"!

Autonomous ---- A or C Class ---- just engage warp drive .00002 and wander to the washroom.

Pee break on the go.

Not sure I would want to attempt that particular function at warp speed!

Why Scotty 0.00002 Wrap is only 3.72 miles per second. Everything is still moving together at the same speed. Its just when the computer wants to slam on the brakes at that speed things get interesting.

Well it would take just a tad over a fortnight to come to a complete stop.

I'm not ready, nor will I get ready. I love to drive it myself.
I'm still wondering if they will be programmed to "step on the gas" (in event of front tire blowout at 70 mph).

No reason why their programming would not include that and more. It only depends on the human doing the design specs and coding itself.

I also enjoy driving myself except in heavy traffic. I think it will be some years before this creeps into RVs in a big way. We'll see it in many more cars and lighter trucks (1/2 ton) and some semis first. It will be arrive as sure as our cars are welded by robots today.

I've done the research myself. This is what I concluded:
Autonomous means the "driver" will not panic, therefore the system will simply use the power steering to instantly steer as necessary in order to remain in its lane. And, at the same time it will slowly reduce power until it decides the speed is slow enough to gently apply the brakes and slowly steer off the lane and off the road (if the coast is clear). Then it will dial 911...
