Google self-drive car gets pulled over… for being too slow


History has been made today as a Google self-drive car was pulled over by police for going to slowly. Surely this is the first time an autonomous vehicle has received a ticket?!

The copper in Mountain View, California, reportedly noticed a line of traffic forming behind a car travelling at approximately 25mph in a 35mph speed zone. Needless to say, he was probably shocked when greeted by a completely empty car.

Although no action was taken, it does raise the question as to how ready the world is for this kind of technology.

Google itself joked about the incident in a post online, saying “we bet humans don’t get pulled over for that too often.”

As self-drive cars seem to be developing minds of their own, we wonder what we’ll see next. Autonomous drive-bys, perhaps? We hope not…
