Video: San Francisco Police Department Pulling Over Self-driving Taxi

A viral video initially posted to Instagram showing San Francisco police officers pulling over a self-driving taxi, looks like something out of a sci-fi stoner comedy. The police officers are visibly confused as they circle the car. And onlookers can be heard laughing.

The car is made by GM subsidiary Cruise. Ond according to CNBC only started to offer nighttime driverless rides to the public earlier this year in San Francisco.

“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,” Cruise said on its corporate Twitter account.
