Those smart guys at Stanford are going to turn us into a nation of stunt drivers. From the title, I thought it would just slide peacefully into a parking space, but nope.

Wouldn't that be illegal? Just saying cops usually frown on any stunt maneuvers

No one got a ticket when their Prius accelerated (the legitimate cases, that is). As long as it'* computer controlled, I see no problems. As long as you're James Bond on a closed set.

Noone really experienced unintended acceleration in a Prius.....

On the road that would be exhibition driving. They were just trying to demonstrate that they could work in extreme conditions.

Nice video though.
