Driverless Car Gets Pulled Over, Flees from Police
An autonomous Cruise car was pulled over by San Francisco police last night who were left baffled by the novel situation -- how do you cite a driverless vehicle? Things got even more slapstick as the vehicle then seemingly tries fleeing from the police, driving off before being pulled over a second time.
The cruise car was initially pulled over for driving with its headlights off before yielding to police. The officers there and onlookers together can be seen laughing at the unusual occurrence as they scratched their heads, wondering how to deal with the unprecedented case. Cruise reportedly reached out to officers in the wake of the incident.
The incident, funny as it is, highlights what happens when the future comes knocking; citing the driver of a driverless car wasn't something that existed, ever, but as the technology proliferates and -- eventually -- becomes more commonplace, scenes like this may eventually become the norm.
