google-driverless-carSAN FRANCISCO – Google’s driverless car project will allow vehicles to overshoot the speed limit by up to 10 miles per hour (16km/h) in certain circumstances, the company says.

Although the driverless car stays within the speed limit in most circumstances, staying under the speed limit might be more dangerous than slightly exceeding it, Google says.

The company’s decision follows research which suggests that sticking to the speed limit when surrounded by drivers exceeding it can be dangerous – and that keeping up with the traffic flow is the safest course of action.
