You don't have to worry about your future self-driving car getting speeding fines. What you need to worry about: getting to somewhere on time, because Google's self-driving car just got a fine for...driving too slow!!!

Here's the report:

“As the officer approached the slow moving car he realized it was a Google Autonomous Vehicle. 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.

The Google self-driving cars operate under the Neighborhood Electric Vehicle Definition per 385.5 of the California Vehicle Code and can only be operated on roadways with speed limits at or under 35 mph. In this case, it was lawful for the car to be traveling on the street as El Camino Real is rated at 35 mph.”

Google wrote that it has capped its prototype vehicles to 25mph. Slowing traffic down should be crime. Right?
