Google is on its way to introduce its latest driverless-car on the streets of the Washington D.C.

The driverless car from the Google was spotted on the streets of the Washington D.C. on Monday night, leaving speculations to the auto community whether Google would make a deal with the transportation authorities in the Washington D.C.

Google's new driverless-car project has chosen Toyota Prius as its model for the ambitious scientific experiment, which could revolutionize the way how cars are driven by the physically handicapped persons. Sources speculate that Google's car was in town to appeal to the federal policy makers.
"It was indeed a surprise for me when I saw the Google's Toyota Prius on the streets of the Washington D.C. just a night before," said Jason Koebler, a press reporter with the U.S. News and World Report. Koebler was the first to take a glimpse at the Google's Driverless-car Toyota Prius.
"Since I was riding a bike, I couldn't take a good picture of it. But I parked my bike and thought of taking a snapshot then it just disappeared in the rainy roads. I definitely speculate that the Toyota Prius was in town may be to woo some of the top officials of the federal lawmakers and it must have been hell bent on getting a nod from them," Koebler added.
