Saw a car with no one in it today!

Literally. On the street, next to my car, and it drove next to me for at least 5 minutes. I was in the passenger seat, and I looked over and NO ONE was in the car. I looked the whole time until it turned onto a side street. Even when we were ahead of them, I looked back and no one was in the driver's seat.

Has anyone else seen something like this? It was so bizarre! Is this some new tech?

Wow, that sounds pretty scary.
Are you sure they weren't just very small?
I guess obviously to drive, they would need to see.
Perhaps they had cameras to see and little screens inside the car?
Or perhaps it was a remote control car?
Perhaps someones little experiment, they have censors gps cameras all streaming to them remotely.
And they are controlling the car by remote control?
It could actually be done, via satellite, but the question is really WHY you would waste the money and time to do it.

Very funny, but no, that's not what this was.

I looked very closely, I didn't see any sign of anyone in it, and I was slightly higher up than them so they'd have to be REALLY small.

There has to be some explanation... we just don't know what it is...
I'm watching this thread.

Did you see the car make a complete stop or accelerate?

2nd line to add a rhyme

We stopped at a light, and they turned one street after it.

LOL, I bet it was a family member of mine, we call her the "headless driver" or the "ghost woman", as she is so short, if you are in a car next to her or behind her you can't see her. It can be pretty "stomach wrenching" to see.

I have always wondered why she did not get some kind of a booster seat, as she sees out the windshield through her steering wheel, and has been in many accidents because of it.

Ive seen lots of cars with no one in them. But never driving. I have seen several cars that I thought were unoccupied at first glance, but then noticed some blue hair barely visible over the the door frame.

I certainly havent ever heard of a remote operated full size car being set loose in a city. And googling turns up nothing that would suggest it could be that.

Perhaps it was some garage or basement inventor who had developed an invisibility potion.

If someone was remotely controlling it.
Which would seem the only plausible explanation.
It would be highly illegal and dangerous on a public road.
But the problem is, under what law would they prosecute it?
Driverless vehicles regulations?

I saw a similar kind of car once in Houston, they have a second steering wheel on the back seat and the side windows are very dark so you can´t see the real driver, like in this old Burt Reynolds movie...

About 30 years ago, my sister had an old Ford Falcon stationwagon that was very customized and , even then pretty rare. She and a friend of hers were on their way home from Mexico and decided to drive up to a lookout along the way to watch the sunrise. The road to the lookout was a dead end road. As they were nearing the top, they BOTH saw themselves coming down, the other way in her car. She said she saw the car, CLEARLY. As it neared, they BOTH saw themselves CLEARLY.
It freaked both of them out so bad they didnt want to go back down.
Finally, after a couple of hours, they went back down, but only with the other person driving.
But then again, my sister has always been a trip.

i see you live in michigan, and that is where all of the new concept cars are designed and tested. possibly a new technology?

Great catch elusive!!

I think you've got the answer right there. I know someone who test drove cars up there in Michigan and couldn't even tell his immediate family about what he saw and/or drove.

they? thought the car was empty :/

interesting, but wasn't the automobile created to better server actual people. why would someone go and make one that drives around by itself? no fun in that - assuming someone actually built a system to drive a car around on it's own and that's what you saw, or the driver was clocked.

That's possible, and I guess if a car doesn't need a driver then it could help stop drunken accidents and the like.
