Unintended Consequence: With Driverless Cars, the Cost of Car Bombs Will Collapse

My prediction: Driverless car and truck technology will collapse the car bombers' cost of detonating car bombs. Driverless car and truck technology, now being tested in a couple states, will take the biggest cost component out of suicide car/truck bombs: the driver.

Program your vehicle's guidance system, and release it. For that matter, release half a dozen at once. Hertz or Avis will pick up the second biggest cost components, though they won't be happy about the condition in which they are returned.

Oh, great.

Thanks to DMS for the comment which sparked the depressing thought.
