Comment: Illegal Right Turn (Score 1) 174

by Hokan (#46867143) Attached to: Google Using Self-Driving Car Data To Make Cars Smarter

In CA (as in most other states) a driver is required to move as far to the right as practicable to prepare for a right turn. This includes merging into a bike lane. The Google car didn't do that. It stayed in the through lane and turned (illegally) across a bike lane.

Seems that the car's programmers need to know a bit more about the driving rules.

blame the victim. i guess you think women in short skirts are asking to be raped?

He's not "blaming the victim," he's pointing out a safety tip for those of you who don't understand the basic physics of how our eyes work, you Fuck.

So "don't wear short skirts" is a good safety tip after news of a rape?

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
