I don't see how this is a worst threat than the current situation provided there plenty suicide bombers available. The driver is only part of the problem to setup a terrorist action against a target. In addition, the AV is much more trackable than any other vehicle and then can be easily and quickly linked to the author. Which defeat partly the purpose of using an AV in first place to not be linked to the terrorist action.
Do you really believe the insurance companies will let these vehicles running without being tracked in order to establish the responsability in case of an accident?
Of course, someone can hijack the AV to make it vanish on the radar, etc. However, this will make each terrorist mission more complicated.
I guess someone in Hollywood wants to build another lame scenario around the usage of AV as remote controlled bombs or whatever.
I think Morgan Freeman has the best approach to dealing with racism, and that is to just stop talking about it.
So, you should have shut up in first place.
Uber is making its money from not paying what any legitimate taxi driver must pay or any taxi corporation must pay to meet the regulations and obligations. In short, Uber is making its money by cheating on the free market. Should they have to incure the same costs as the regular taxi industry as a whole you would be legitimated to talk about free market. But they just don't. Making money by cheating is easy until you get caught. Now, they are lobbying to evade the rules and regulations.
The regulations exists because otherwise nobody will enter the market in first place. They are there to ensure a decent revenue to the taxi driver and make this job appealing enough so there is enough taxis available for the citizen when they need one.

What a waste of resources. The selling argument '...preserving our memorial spacecraft for eternity.' is idotic, nothing is for eternity, in particular this solar system we all know perfectly will eventually be eaten by its Sun.
