Google Wins the Internet

A Google self-driving car was pulled over, for driving too slow.

Mostly this is just funny. But it does raise questions about how driving incentives (as opposed to just skill) will differ when humans cede control to machines — particularly machines programmed by other people.

Maybe I want to speed in order to get to a meeting, but Google doesn’t particularly want me to do that. Who gets final say?
