Carjacking apparently isn’t cool anymore (either that or concealed carry laws have made it to dangerous) because now we have this to worry about…

Imagine you’re driving down the road and suddenly, you have no brakes.  Scary thought because brake failure does happen but, what if your failure wasn’t mechanical?  What if it was some computer geek driving a few cars behind you that hacked your cars computer and actually shut the brakes off? Or tightened your seat belt super tight while you’re in the middle of  sharp curve?  Caused the engine to accelerate?  Disabled your power steering?

Granted, at the moment, it’s a bit of a long shot for someone outside your vehicle to hack it but,it might be coming soon. Soon, deadly pranks like this could be pulled off by people behind you, ahead of you, or even watching you from up on Transmountain or some other such vantage point.

Read more here and see how it’s done in the video below.

Explanations begin around 1:23, experimentation begins around 1:48.
