A CALIFORNIA police officer made a traffic stop but wrote no ticket. The car had no driver.
Mountain View police said in a statement that an officer pulled over a Google self-driving car that was being tested on local roads on Thursday.
The officer noticed the car going 24mph (38km/h) in a 35mph (56km/h) zone and realised it was a Google Autonomous Vehicle. He stopped the car and contacted its operators to let them know it was impeding traffic, but no citation was given.
A person is required to sit behind the wheel of self-driving cars.
The Google project responded in a blog post, saying it’s never received a ticket and adding, “Driving too slowly? Bet humans don’t get pulled over for that too often.”
