VIDEO: Google's Secret Driverless Cars In Action

Yesterday we told you Google's secretly developing a driverless car and even logged over 140,000 miles on U.S. public roads. Today we've got video of a Google autonomous car driving normal California highways with nobody at the wheel. Eerie!

We've got to wonder — is there any statute against driverless cars in California statutes? What if Google's code goes wrong and the car veers into another lane without warning? There's a reason DARPA's testing this stuff out for years first before it'll even think of putting an autonomous vehicle out in public testing.

I seriously can't believe nobody's out there screaming at Google for potentially endangering the public.

Also, how fuel efficient is it for Google to be running a Prius around at highway speeds anyway?

The "secret" car that they've told everyone about? The "driverless" danger that has a dude sitting in the front seat? And all that fuel they are burning in the Prius! I had no idea you were such a tree hugging fuel conserver. Hey, since you're doing this whole next car blogger thing, can I submit one that will be exactly in line with your typical post: "How electric cars and everything made after 1972 will rape your mother."
