Well, I hope it aint’ that SIRI (I hate that beatch - she can’t understand a damn thing)
Now such vehicles will part of the collective to be controlled by our masters.
Oh come on now...that’s taking it a bit too far.
Oh SURE it’s for safety, sure.

To log EVERYWHERE you go, EVAR.
Proudly sponsored by the NSA.

“I got to this stop sign first, bozo!”
“Back off, Jack. You’re riding my bumper.”
“slow down! you’re killing the planet!”

“work out issues including security and privacy.”
Actually NSA just wants to sit around and laugh at the cars conversations...lol and get paid by taxpayer for doing so.

When the radio channels are jammed or some hacker finds a way to spoof the signals, this could interesting.
Easy way to dispose of your political enemies. Alter breath analysis and maybe they can screw over the grieving family.
The cars “communicate” now. It’s called the middle finger.
“Up your cache!”
Lemme guess, exempt Car companies fro lawsuits when smart cars run into other cars.
