Autonomous vehicle intercepted by SFPD, avoid citation
A self-driving vehicle belonging to Cruise was stopped by San Francisco police officers earlier this month after the driverless car was spotted with no headlights activated in the dark.
The absurd scenario was captured in a video by Brandon Melim on April 1 at around 10 p.m. near the corner of Clement Street and 8th Avenue in the Richmond District. The video begins with an SFPD officer approaching the idle car before recognizing that it is empty. The car then swerves forward through the intersection and comes to a halt at another stop, now with its hazard warning lights on.
