I think that would be a great idea as soon as autonomous cars are available for purchase.

I'd bet even autonomous cars will kill more per year than terrorist attacks.

If we use global numbers, probably not.

>In 2014, 32,685 people were killed in terrorist attacks. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-11-17/global-terrorism-index...

The WHO puts global road traffic deaths at around 1 million, so if autonomous cars reduces that by a factor of 50, which seems likely, they'd kill less than terrorism.
