Autonomous self-driving vehicles are being looked by many people and car companies as the future of safe transport. But a recent incident showed that even autonomous vehicles aren’t immune from traffic stops.
It was revealed last Thursday that one of Google’s self-driving car was pulled over in the company’s hometown of Mountain View, California because apparently it was driving too slowly.
According to the Mountain View Police Department (MVPD), they observed traffic backing up behind the peculiar-looking prototype vehicle, which was traveling at 24 mph in a 35 mph zone, about two miles from Google’s headquarters. The police also said that the Google car in the photo was self-driving legally on the street which was identified as El Camino Real – a 35 mph zone.
