Self-driving fleet by Uber has already got the problem after one of the cars was claimed running a red lights in San Francisco on 14 December. Human error has been officially blamed by this incident.
The incident video has been uploaded to YouTube by a taxi company after it has been recorded by one of its dashboard cameras. It was known by the San Francisco Examiner that claimed the details with the operations manager of the Luxor Cab Company, Charles Rotter. On that video, it is shown that a car passing through the red light while the pedestrian has already started to cross the road. Apparently, the similar thing showed in other areas of the city in the same morning, as tweeted and spotted by Annie Gaus, the writer. She said to the Examiner that the Uber hit the Lyft car that she was in.
The cars had just only been trialed by Uber in the city that the day incident happened. They have refused to get allowance for testing the vehicles in the California State which is arguing that it does not need to be that way because human drivers are going to be there for the test.
But according to them the car was not loading up passengers. The claim running a red light is dangerous for every pedestrian, passenger, driver, and car in the vicinity. It is real big problem for test drivers of Uber in populated cities if there is no car or driver can be relied upon to follow one of the most important and simplest riles of the world. In earlier 2016, this company had already started trials in Pittsburgh, where a couple of public members reported finding one Uber driving the wrong way down the road and a couple of others involved in a perfect incident. There are no a couple of accidents with the authorities of the city that have been recorded.
The most important point of self-driving vehicles is to enhance road safety and also the efficiency. While they are still in infancy and this accident is one of the portions that should be reported for those people who are developing this kind of technology. In May, the Tesla Model S driver was killed because it used Autopilot beta feature, and in February, a bus had been hit by the Google car in California and was claimed to be at fault.
