Police Pull Over Self-Driving Car in California

Not even a self-driving car can avoid being stopped by police!

An officer in Mountain View, California, pulled over one of Google's self-driving cars Thursday. A passenger was inside the car at the time, but no one was behind the wheel.

Authorities say the car was driving 11 miles below the speed limit, backing up traffic.  Google says the car's speed is capped at 25 miles an hour for safety reasons.

When all was said and done, the officer let the car go without a ticket since it didn't actually break the law.
