Driverless car stopped by police in California
A police officer in California stopped a car because it drove too slowly. But the Google-car was empty.

It was namely one of the online giant Google's self driving cars that recently was stopped by police in Mountain View.

The car was seen on the roads by the patrol when it was stopped.

The officer thought that the car drove way too slowly, and contacted the operators to tell them that the car disrupted the traffic.

The Google vehicle was driving 24 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone in Mountain View, California, where the company has its headquarters.

"As the officer approached the slow moving car he realized it was a Google autonomous vehicle," the Mountain View Police Department wrote in a blog post. "The officer stopped the car 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 per 22400(a) of the California Vehicle Code."

However, no ticket was given.

Self-driven vehicles have been involved in nine traffic accident in California in a year, according to the state's traffic authorities.

Eight of the crashes have happened with driverless cars developed by the web giant Google.
