Eventually, because the driver failed to respond to the Tesla's prompts to engage the steering wheel, his car came to a stop on the Bay Bridge before officers found the vehicle. According to the California Highway Patrol on Twitter, the offender attempted to defend his actions by explaining to the officers that his car was using Autopilot.

Hit and Run Leads to Rollover, But Doesn't Stop There

  Hit and Run Leads to Rollover, But Doesn't Stop There It's a tale of road rage and what not to do from both sides of a collision. It's a tale of road rage and what not to do from both sides of a collision. And of just how strong the BMW 7 series is. A road rage video of a hit, a chase, a rollover, and more chase. Plus two drivers who should probably get their driving privileges suspended.

In what is literally a plot point from the latest season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Lynette Atuaia received a $72 ticket for the "unnecessary use of horn" after she says she briefly beeped once at a car that appeared out of nowhere and passed her on the right as she crossed the intersection on the island of O'ahu. Unfortunately, it happened to be a police cruiser.

"I was afraid. I thought I was going to hit him. My initial reaction was, ‘Hey, get out of my way. I’m going to hit you. You’re cutting me off!'" she told KHON. "Then when I pulled over into the parking lot, he just said, ‘License and registration, I’m giving you a ticket for honking your horn.’ He said I should have seen I was an emergency vehicle, but he didn’t have his lights and sirens on as he was trying to cut me off or pass me."

Texas Man Accused of Damaging 12 Police Cars With Sledgehammer

According to Hawaii state law, drivers are only supposed to use their horns "when reasonably necessary to ensure safe operation" in traffic—in other words, to warn others of the imminent risk of a collision.

Even though that's exactly what Atuaia claims she was doing, she still ended up with a citation. She told the station she plans on contesting it in court, which the Honolulu Police Department confirmed is her right "if [she] feels the ticket was issued in error."

It's not the first time we've seen a questionable ticket issued over a perceived slight—and until we get those promised autonomous police cars, it won't be the last.
