Can I be Held Negligent if My Self-Driving Car Causes an Accident?

There is something very appealing about the self-driving car of the not too distant future.  They'll be no more need to be alert and awake for the 5 hour trip home after a weekend away, relationships will be saved because they'll be no occasion to get lost, "discuss" directions or try to contradict the navigation system.  I once said to my husband, are you going to listen to me or "her" (the car's navigation system) - not a good question to ask when you have to spend several more hours in the car with someone.  Maybe even the elimination of road rage and distracted driving?
