A Google self-driving car stopped by police for driving too slowly!

In California this week, a shocking arrest as a Google self-driving car was photographed being pulled over by a motorcycle policeman for driving too slowly, as posted on the Re/Code website, which took the photograph from the Google+ page of the Google Self-Driving Project.

The incident took place after police noticed a car moving at only 25 mph (38 km/h) on a road with a 35 mph (56 km/h) speed limit.

Ultimately no ticket was issued by police, although according to some news outlets the policeman did explain to the car’s occupant – self-driving car only means there is no driver – that it was slowing down traffic. Commented the Google car team in its Google+ post, “Driving too slowly? Bet humans don’t get pulled over for that too often.”

Can you recall ever getting pulled over for driving too slowly?
