Capturing the driver's intent
Where this will get really interesting is when it's combined with behavioral profiling and predictive analytics to suggest what the other driver will do next. Could be a good thing, as long as the computer guesses right.

Re: Capturing the driver's intent
Also, the extent to which vehicle-to-vehicle communication can be subpoenaed will be interesting. Your car may be witness to a crime. Every citizen potentially becomes a surveillance node for the government by driving a sensor-laden car.

v2v communications - what about older cars?
Warning about only newer cars approaching, but ignoring older models (newer cars will be equipped with v2v and old cars will not be) will do much more harm than good. And what about trucks, buses, police, fire and so on - will those be equipped as well? As for collecting information and using it in court, in some countries you won't even be able to buy car insurance without carcam installed.

Re: Capturing the driver's intent
I liked the idea that V2V can save people's lives on the road.  I guess the real benefits only come if all the cars on the road have V2V.   People don't feel that their privacy is protected after news has been release of the NSA.  Now that cars will be monitoring their driving patterns and communicating with other, it will be a tough idea to sell.

Security
Massive potential, but some serious security issues to consider. Not just along the lines of keeping people from hacking a car, but making sure that what any single car is getting from other cars is legit. Its easy to imagine a scenario where a device is built that simulates the signals of many cars being present, bringing traffic to a halt because all the cars think there is a stopped car immediately in front of them.

And then of course there is the almost inevitiable headline "Chinese group causes hundreds of automobile collisions within a few seconds".
