Yeah its one of those things that they have to wait to map out the rural roads, and until then it will be poor. But things are typically calmer and there are less factors to code for. This is why highway super cruise is such an easy feature to produce, also the grid lock mode of follow the car in front of you. But, In the city you have the chaos of city drivers being poor at following the rules, the pedestrians are cut throat as well, and there is a lot of environmental factors that are ever changing. It will get done, but thats where the hobbiest level probably stops. Its easy for a hobbiest to code out super cruise control for the highway, but trying to navigate the city takes a lot of miles to be logged.
