Your vehicle shields the PCU fairly well, especially on wet ground. Not guaranteed, of course.
The biggest danger is to devices that are designed to receive a signal; cell phones, TVs, etc.
Of course, one could make the argument that Americans are incapable of surviving without a phone attached to their ear and a computer in front of their face, but I seem to remember a time, maybe 20 years ago, when these things weren't around and we got by just fine.
Also, the area of effect determines the potential, so the larger the area the more powerful it would have to be. If directed it can be pulse-modulated and aimed at small targets, but then again you could sit in a tower with a scoped rifle and create more havoc.
