I wonder how AI handles flipping the middle finger when someone cuts you off or something else exceedingly stupid? Maybe it just uploads a virus into the offending car?

Um, no.
This isn't all that good of an idea. In studies, it's been shown that people don't drive are correctly as they think they do, and that includes professional drivers. So what this may be doing is enshrining improper ways to respond to situations, just because that's the way people do it. And then there is the fact that about 95% of accidents are caused by human error of one kind or another.
