Even though nowadays there is an effort to make everything as dumbproof as possible, there is some extent that not even all the electronic nannies meant to limit human input (or in this case eliminate it at all) would become effective on that matter. And if we look at aircraft, most of the so-called "autonomy" provided by autopilots and flight-directors rely on external inputs such as VOR and the transponders, not to mention that airfields usually have a more strictly controlled access compared to streets, thus reducing the amount of risks.
