@Chaparral -- Stopping an autonomous vehicle is trivial; unlike a human driver you can reasonably assume it will NOT intentionally run something or someone over if it can stop.

But you can also bet it will immediately call for assistance, so you better be prepared for that to escalate quickly too. Jamming that transmission shouldn't be all that difficult; it requires surprisingly little power to jam a cell signal, for example, because the ERP on the *receiving* end is tiny and all you need to do is overload the receiver's front end and the handshaking that HAS TO take place for the link to stay up fails.
