    i think it's unsafe, hackers now can get access to any website and do you really think that they would not hack some car system?

    Really unsafe. If road was totally adapted ok, but now it's totally unsafe.  :)

    Already being done. https://www.wired.com/2015/07/hackers-remotely-kill-jeep-highway/

    And that's while someone is actually driving the car.

    Cool features but hackers nowadays are more furious and dangerous

    If the software driving a car was airgapped, and if all cars on the road were likewise self-driving and airgapped, then sure, I'm all for it. 

    However, having the car connect to a network means you're guaranteed to get hackers. A few might be genuinely dangerous hacks, but I can more easily imagine hacks that take over your sound system (getting rick-rolled whilst you drive....uggh) or hacks that mean your car takes you to the nearest adult bookstore, instead of your desired destination. 


    I also don't have any intention of giving up driving. I enjoy driving, despite all the morons on the road who seem oblivious to lanes, speed limits and other traffic.
