According to The New York Times, Google's self-driving cars are on the receiving end of a significant amount of abuse: slashed tires, thrown rocks, even attempts at driving the vehicles off the road. The reason: not everyone thinks giant corporations have the best interest of the public at heart. Tesla has been on the receiving end of some strange behaviour from the public as well.

His wife, Elizabeth, 35, admitted in an interview that her husband “finds it entertaining to brake hard” in front of the self-driving vans, and that she herself “may have forced them to pull over” so she could yell at them to get out of their neighborhood. The trouble started, the couple said, when their 10-year-old son was nearly hit by one of the vehicles while he was playing in a nearby cul-de-sac.
