(Sly Oyster)   If the cops stop the Google driverless car for a moving violation does the car go all HAL 9000 and refuse to pull over? Who gets the ticket? So many unanswered questions   (slyoyster.com) divider line 18

When the cop approaches the Google car, the car calmly explains the following:

"Write me a ticket and I start publishing your search queries for gay porn. Have a nice day, Officer."

If it's a black car it gets the spike strip and beaten down with batons after it wrecks.

If the car has a manual override so you could have grabbed the wheel, you're a drunk driver. You need a designated sober person to sit in the usual driving position.

Hmm, duly noted, guess I will continue to sleep it off in a dumpster behind the bar.

Or, you know, live in the City and take the subway home.



You said dumpster twice

Assuming that the only people who'd be able to afford a driverless car at the start would be the ultrarich, i'm going to go with "nobody gets a ticket, but the officer involved gets suspended"

The guy in the front, left seat gets the ticket. The case is heard in traffic court. The judge doesn't care about any of this self-driving nonsense. $50 fine plus court costs plus witness fees. Next case.

If there's nobody in the front seat, here's how I'd set it up. The robot car finds an active GTA session on the net and hands over control to the human player, who thinks it's a new scene in the game. When the hubcaps stop rolling the car disconnects. The player had no criminal intent and could not be tracked down if he did.

Since we're going with fictional stories, I'll say that Kodos and Kang will get the ticket.

xcv: Cameras' face recognition technology fails to detect dark-skinned faces. Entire populations are unable to start their cars, whites are able to respond to comments about lack of being able to dance with retorts about being able to drive.


That only happens with the models using technology from Veridian Dynamics

Isn't not having a driver a moving violation?

The officer uses the license and tickets the registered owner of the car for performing an Illegal operation and the car gets shut down.

Easy.

Ennuipoet: If you spend the evening at the bar, get well and truly liquored up and then take your self driving car through a DUI checkpoint (with you lolling in the passenger seat) is that a DUI? I suspect you would still get charged.

Coming home from the bar is the only reason I can see for a self driving car.


You clearly have never taken a trip with my wife behind the wheel.

I'm in my 40s, and I'm legally blind; I have lost all of my peripheral vision so even riding a bike is out of the question. I am very much looking forward to having a car that can drive me around. This technology is a very pleasant surprise; even a couple of years ago I would never have expected to see something like this so soon.

This will also give all the elderly baby boomers an option other than either giving up their freedom or plowing through the farmer's market.

It'd be great for blind people, and people unable to drive due to age or infirmity. They'd also make handy unmanned vehicles to send out with pizza deliveries, pick up your online order from the hardware store, etc. Once these exist, there'll be a million things they can be useful for. Probably number 2 will be a terrorist loading one up with explosives and directing it at some target in a city.

The answer is shoot a random dog, use a taser 6 times on the passenger and plant drugs.

Well, this presents an interesting dilemma. What happens when police pull over a car driven by a computer, as the case maybe in Washington, D.C.? I can't really find any news stories about this incident, but I would love to hear what the hell the cops had to say and what the human passenger had to say and if the Google car ended up going all HAL9000 on the police and refused to pull over. So many questions!

Yes, so many questions.

I don't know, I wouldn't mind having the car drive itself for my morning commute so I could read the news while sipping my coffee. Or for long road trips. Or, really, almost any trip over 10 minutes.

Wow, that was quite an in depth article. Luckily, they linked to their source article that had all of zero words.
