As more autonomous vehicles operate in pilot programs and limited commercial deployments in multiple states, questions linger over how they should interact with law enforcement.
Some autonomous driving tech companies have encountered problems.
In April, a robotaxi operated by General Motors-backed Cruise was pulled over by San Francisco Police Department officers for driving without its headlights on at night. The vehicle repositioned itself before the traffic stop concluded, driving across an intersection before pulling over again.
There have also been instances in which Cruise vehicles blocked emergency responders and intersections in the city.
Self-driving tech companies say they are trying to work out these kinks and prepare for smooth interactions once their fleets are widely deployed.
