    Not sure why Google needs to defend their cars when other people are rear-ending them at Stoplights. The media needs to quit pointing the finger at faultless technology and instead should reassert the problem on the people who are actually at fault in these “accidents”. I can see how companies who are going to be adversely impacted by this technology are going to go out of their way to intentionally cause accidents with these self-driving autos as more and more of them appear on the road, simply to stifle innovation or to delay the inevitable. This unfortunately, is the world we live in. Let’s hope Google adds a critical update to the software in Google car 2.0 that detects all drivers with their heads up their a$$es, and takes entirely different routes based on proximity.

    Just wondering… Do these cars confine themselves to driving 55 (or whatever speed limit) when traffic flow is considerably faster? Right or wrong, traffic flow in our area is typically 10 mph over the posted on our highways. Until all cars are self driving, and no one can speed, how is this being integrated into the Google car’s behavior? Like it or not, the lower speed vehicles actually can cause a hazard in this driving environment.
