FBI: Driverless cars are 'lethal weapons,' aid in suspect getaways

A restricted FBI report, uncovered by The Guardian, reveals that driverless cars will impact how law enforcement officers and suspects operate their vehicles.

In the unclassified document, these "lethal weapons" can be programmed to use as getaway vehicles while suspects fire guns at their pursuers, for example. Criminals could override safety features to ignore traffic lights and speed limits, and terrorists could load up these cars with bombs and program them to drive to detonate at specific locations.
