Finally - autonomous car technology has value

Google invents the ability to detect police cars in the area :D
sadly at present it seems to be based on flashing blue and red lights (too late, they are about to pull you over...)

but lets argue...
it would make sense for all emergency vehicles to communicate with autonomous cars to warn them of likely danger areas (police cars / ambulances / fire engines are usually at or on the way to some event where it would make sense for normal motorists to avoid - accident / fire / injury etc.). As autonomous cars won't be breaking the law, there is no downside to letting them know, so lets fit all emergency vehicles with the ability to tell autonomous cars where they are...

fab, now lets strip the receptor out of an autonomous car and stick it in our ferrari :D :racing:

the Google car will also automatically pull over...
now lets see, I wonder how many people might suddenly have flashing lights ;)
