WARNING: DISTURBING FOOTAGE- Arizona police have put out the video recorded from the recent Uber autonomous car crash where it killed a pedestrian.
Originally, defenders stated that the pedestrian was at fault because she darted out into traffic and the vehicle could not have anticipated such an action.
The video tells another story- while it does appear that the pedestrian is not crossing the road in a crosswalk, she was crossing a two-lane highway with no obstructions and had already crossed one lane when getting hit.
In Florida, you’re charged with being safe with your vehicle- and a human driver here would’ve likely been at fault to a significant degree.
“Warning: This video may be disturbing to some people.”
“Uber has been testing its self-driving cars in numerous states and temporarily suspended its vehicles in Arizona last year after a crash involving one of its vehicles, a Volvo SUV. When the company first began testing its self-driving cars in California in 2016, the vehicles were caught running red lights, leading to a high-profile dispute between state regulators and the San Francisco-based corporation.”
