Self-driving cars could easily turn into self-crashing cars that deliberately target and kill humans, expert warns

(Natural News) There has been a lot of hype surrounding self-driving cars and their potential to change the way humans use roads for a very long time. However, with all of the hope that they can change things for the better, there are also some reasons to fear for your safety while you’re in them. . . . self-driving cars are actually just highly-advanced, internet-connected, GPS-equipped computers on four wheels. And that, according to [Zach] Aysan, is where the main crux of the problem comes from: Computers-as-cars are just as vulnerable to hackers as most other kinds of computers. . . .
If a group with nefarious interests somehow manage to access and remotely control just one self-driving vehicle, they could easily and effectively turn it into a directed bomb, warns Aysan. “A fully charged Tesla traveling over 200 kilometers (125 miles) per hour that crashes into a chemical plant, electrical subsystem, oil line, or gas station will have an impact worse than bombs that terrorists set off in the middle east,” he said.
Now imagine if they could hack into and control a fleet of a hundred. Or a thousand. . . .

When you are driving your car on a busy city street, realize that about 90 percent of the drivers around you are impaired due to pharmaceutical drugs (all drugs have side effects), alcohol, marijuana, or illegal drugs. Then realize that fully 50 percent of adults are also sleep-deprived, which can be worse than a drug-induced stupor. Now add to this the possibility that these drug-impaired, sleep-deprived individuals might be "driving" the latest self-driving self-flying drone/automobiles, and you have a recipe for a major disaster.
This is yet another reason why it is important to pray unceasingly as we never know when God and His Angels will call us home to eternity. Perhaps by our prayers we will be spared any serious self-driving automobile accidents.
