Google Self-Driving Car Gets Pulled Over

November 13, 2015  | 

A Google self-driving car was pulled over by police because the vehicle was traveling too slowly, officials said, reports NBC.

The officer in Mountain View, CA, noticed traffic backing up behind the prototype vehicle, which was traveling 24 mph in a 35 mph zone, the force said.

Realizing it was a Google self-driving car, the cop decided to pull it over "and made contact with the operators to learn more about how the car was choosing speeds along certain roadways and to educate the operators about impeding traffic," the police department said in a blog post.

The Google Self-Driving Car Project responded in a post on its Google+ page, explaining that the speed of the prototype vehicles had been capped at 25 mph for "safety reasons."
