Google Self-Driving Car on City Streets

David Levinson tweeted this interesting video showing the Google self-driving car operating on city streets around people walking and biking. My reaction was as follows:

Bet it gets a lot of horn honking from behind while it waits for bikes, peds, and tracks to clear. I like that.

@mikesonn tweeted this:

or, more likely, lots of drivers blowing around it because “why are you sitting there?!?!”

I am pleased to see the Google car recognizing people and not just cars. What do you think?
