After skipping traffic lights and endangering the circulation of cyclists, California has said enough. The Department of Motor Vehicles of that state has eliminated the registration of autonomous taxis, which for practical purposes means that they have to return to the garage.
The move comes after the negotiations between Uber and the administration came to a standstill. The Motor Department threatened the company with legal sanctions if it did not withdraw the experimental taxis because they did not have the permission to drive autonomously.
