Will autonomous cars be safe? The technology that makes it possible is almost here, but there may be more legal implications to face before it hits the road. The FBI is saying that it could revolutionize high-speed car chases within a matter of years and criminals could use them as "lethal weapons".

The report says that autonomy will make mobility more efficient, but “will also open up greater possibilities for dual-use applications and ways for a car to be more of a potential lethal weapon that it is today.”
Or it could be used as self-driving bombs in the hands of terrorists.
