There are no rapidly appearing obstacles you need to rapidly steer around either. Must never be left unobserved as airplane autopilot may disengage or malfunction if sensors are not reading right.

Again, must happen under human control and with parameters set first, involves a lot of human work. Won't happen by itself, you cannot just set destination airport and expect autopilot to take off and land.

Ever heard of pilots and autopilots steering straight into mountains, ground and other aircrafts?

It can, military have done it for decades and numerous times been very close to mid air collisions with regular passanger jets etc.

Ever heard about straw man? Those are not rapidly appearing obstacles, and you cannot steer around them in a split second. They happen due to planning mistakes and other poorly made decisions rather than being unable to rapidly steer around. Flying a passenger or cargo airplane is a slow methodical process. If a pilot sees the need to steer rapidly, very likely it's already way too late.
