The first time a city gets hit with a major EMF burst, or GPS satellites get knocked out with high-powered lasers, that concept will come to a screeching halt. Those have potential to kill all modern modes of transportation. Then, there are the hackers to consider. Acceptance of autonomous automobiles may be a long way off - like not in our lifetime (at least not in mine).

I want mine to be able to flip the bird to someone who doesn't take their turn at a four-way stop.  That might nave to be an aftermarket add-on.   Cheesy
