Cop Pulls Over Google Self-Driving Car For Driving Too Slow

Zandr Milewski with a copyright from Aleksandr Milewski snapped a picture of a Google Self-Driving Car pulled over by a Los Angleles police officer in a parking lot. Google posted on Google+ that it was pulled over for driving too slowly.

Google explained what happened and made it sound like no ticket was issued:

Driving too slowly? Bet humans don’t get pulled over for that too often.

We’ve capped the speed of our prototype vehicles at 25mph for safety reasons. We want them to feel friendly and approachable, rather than zooming scarily through neighborhood streets.

Like this officer, people sometimes flag us down when they want to know more about our project. After 1.2 million miles of autonomous driving (that’s the human equivalent of 90 years of driving experience), we’re proud to say we’ve never been ticketed!

Truth is, sometimes driving too slow is dangerous.

Zandr posted the picture on Facebook.
