Autonomous Cars Stuck At A Four-Way Stop In Portland, None Of The Cars Want To Hurt The Others Feelings
Portland, Oregon- Robot and Rider was alerted of a four-hour delay at an intersection in Portland, Oregon because four autonomous cars were at a complete standstill. No car wanted to make the first move, the autonomous cars didn't want to upset the other cars by making the first move.
Eventually, the one of the autonomous cars made a move and went straight through the intersection a bystander tells Robot and Rider. Once the autonomous car made the first move, the other cars reacted passive agressively by honking their horns at the car that made the first move. The other cars then decided it was their turn and all turned at the same time, resulting in a three car crash.
The intersection in Portland is finally clear, and no one was late to clown school.
