Google’s Self-Driving Car Takes Blind Man To Taco Bell.

Google’s new self-driving vehicle takes Steve Mahan who is legally blind to a Taco Bell in Morgan Hill, CA for a couple tacos. The release of the video celebrates Google’s 200,000 miles of computer driving. Mahan says the vehicle would change his life taking him places where he wants and needs to go. So far Nevada is the only state to allow self-driven vehicles. This trip was made possible with the help of the local police department and assistance in the vehicle. If something were to go wrong the vehicle could be stopped immediately by a brake on the passenger side, emergency shut off on the center console, or by laptop. The car travels on it’s own for about a mile and a half flawlessly.
