Google’s self-driving car killed itself after trying to navigate the Coventry ring road, inquest hears

“The car is designed to brake and change lanes when necessary, so it’s not far fetched to see it choosing to burst into flames when it realises that it’s trapped in a loop and will never see the M6 again.”

Google plans to further test the suicidal nature of the self-driving cars by running a number of tests on the ring roads of Stoke-on-Trent, Derby and Redditch.

“Given the nature of roads across the UK, motorists should expect to see a lot more of the melted remains of our cars getting scraped off the tarmac this summer.”
