    Default The Attack on Saudi Oil Shows Why Driverless Cars Will Never Become Legal

    The hacking/terrorism problem is insurmountable.

    https://www.thestreet.com/investing/...legal-15091327

    sep 16 2019 The attack on the Saudi oil facility explains why it's illegal to operate a drone near an airport or a city center anywhere in America today. The risk of terrorist sabotage is simply too high.

    But what is a driverless car, if not a 5,000-pound, land-based drone? We saw it not only in "Telefon" but also in car/truck bomb events in Afghanistan and Iraq over the last 10+ years.

    Automakers can crow all they want about their intent to make their future driverless vehicles unhackable. Gee, why didn't anyone think of making a connected computer unhackable before? Please, someone call Microsoft, Apple, Google, Dell, Hewlett-Packard or any of the other computer industry entities and inform them about this revolutionary -- and easy-to-implement -- idea.

    The fact is, there is no such thing as an unhackable connected computer, and there will never be. Thinking that one can be created is as futile as attempting to ban human stupidity. It's in the nature of things, and can't be wished away.
    Reckless drivers are a bigger threat to you than all other criminals put together!

    It's only fair that the press is biased towards liberals since the public is biased towards conservatives.

    When the guns are gone, EVERYTHING IS GONE.

    "China is the future of electric cars
    In 2018, more electric cars were sold in China than in the rest of the world combined. The Chinese government has spent nearly $60 billion in the last decade to create an industry that builds electric cars, while also reducing the number of licenses available for gasoline-powered cars to increase demand for electric cars. And Beijing plans to spend just as much over the next decade."

    It's only fair that the press is biased towards liberals since the public is biased towards conservatives.

    They are not assholes. They are psychopaths with no concern for the safety of others and no sense of right and wrong.

    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    More than likely what will kill driverless cars isn't a risk such as you describe in your OP, but because the first accidents caused by driverless cars will sue the companies making them. They won't continue to pose such a risk to themselves.

    This was demonstrated quite hilariously during the 2019 CES show in Las Vegas when a driverless car took out an autonomous robot.

    In theory, hackers could already cause huge death tolls hacking traffic lights, rail switching systems, air traffic control, and the electric grid. But, to this point, they haven't had much success with those things.

    There's a Movie with Bruce Willis that explains all this.
