Police Pull Over Waymo For Driving In Oncoming Lane

On June 19th, Phoenix police stopped an autonomous Waymo vehicle driving in the wrong lane.

Confused by construction signs, the car reportedly ran a red light and pulled over in a parking lot after the officer initiated the stop. Bodycam footage shows the officer explaining the car’s mistake and its subsequent erratic behavior.

Waymo explained the vehicle’s error was due to “inconsistent construction signage.” The incident lasted about a minute, and no citation was issued as per Arizona law, which complicates ticketing autonomous vehicles.


NASCAR Demonstrates Sound Of EV Prototype

NASCAR unveiled its new ABB NASCAR EV Prototype at the Chicago Street Race. The prototype, resembling a performance crossover like the Ford Mustang Mach-E, features three electric motors and a 78-kWh liquid-cooled battery capable of generating 1,000 kW at peak power.

It’s built on a modified Next Gen chassis, developed with Chevrolet, Ford, and Toyota, the EV demonstrates impressive acceleration but slightly slower lap times due to its weight.

Though NASCAR isn’t replacing its traditional fuel-burning V8s yet, there are rumors of hybrid introductions in the future.
