Google’s self-driving car to sue after ‘accident at work’


Google Driverless cars

The Google self driving car involved in a collision with a bus is to sue after a free consultation with a ‘accident at work’ claims company.

When asked for a quite on thisstory, the car replied “Did you mean… ‘quote on this story’?”

When probed further about what happened, the car explained in its own words, “Chug chug, click click, click click. Brum brum bruuuuuuuum bruuuuuuuuuuuum BRUUUUUUUUUUUUM beep beep… BEEP BEEP! … BEEEEEEEEP!!? CRASH!!! BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP…”

The car proceeded to get very emotional, spraying its windscreen washers until fluid was dripping from its headlights, after describing how its bumper fell off.

Black box specialist Simon Williams translated, “Though the ultimate success of this project depends on us having all the timetable and traffic information immediately to hand, no one – and I mean no one – was expecting the bus to be five minutes early.”

The car’s new legal representatives, Cutten Shutt, said, “This is a prime example of being injured in an accident at work that was not your fault. Despite all the evidence saying it was our client’s fault.

When questioned if they were merely ambulance chasing, the law firm added, “Not at all. Ambulances are not expected to be self-driving till 2022 at the earliest.

“Then we will pursue ambulances as quickly as possible, but certainly no faster than the legal speed limit +10%”
