San Francisco police were puzzled after pulling over a car without a driver. 

The San Francisco Police Department says officers stopped a vehicle for driving after dark without its headlights activated. When police walked up to the driver’s side window to address the occupant, they found no one in side.

The autonomous vehicle was a taxi operated by Cruise, a company that specializes in self-driving cars.

“Our AV yielded to the police vehicle, then pulled over to the nearest safe location for the traffic stop, as intended. An officer contacted Cruise personnel and no citation was issued,” the company¬†tweeted.

“We work closely with the SFPD on how to interact with our vehicles, including a dedicated phone number for them to call in situations like this,” thet continued.
