A video has emerged of a driverless Cruise car getting pulled over in San Francisco by police who found the autonomous vehicle didn’t have anyone behind the wheel.
In the video spotted by CNBC, the Cruise car initially pulls over to the side of the road and stops as a Policeman approached the driver’s side before accelerating to cross an in intersection and pull off further down the road.
“There’s nobody in it,” he’s heard to say.
Cruise said on Sunday that the car behaved as expected. “Our AV yielded to the police vehicle, then pulled over to the nearest safe location, as intended. An officer contacted Cruise personnel and no citation was issued,” It said on its corporate Twitter account.
Cruise told CNBC that the San Francisco Police Department has a dedicated phone number available at all times for officers to call when the company’s driverless vehicles get pulled over.
