Uber won’t face criminal charges in deadly self-driving car crash

Prosecutors said on Tuesday that Uber Technologies is not criminally liable in a March 2018 crash in Tempe, Arizona, in which one of the company’s self-driving cars struck and killed a pedestrian. The county attorney said that there was ’no basis for criminal liability’ for Uber, but that the back-up driver, Rafaela Vasquez, should be referred to the Tempe police for investigation.

I think she should have been charged. But on the side note, I live in a country that is half of the year dark and people in this country focus a lot on using reflexes (I always have a reflexsvest with me). Please people, use them! Be on the safe side! Pluss it it would be easier to call on people when they say they didn't see someone!

It seems likely I would have hit her if I was watching the road. Came outta no where.

For sure she should be charged. It's her job to pay attention to the road and she looked like she was either distracted or sleeping. Human eyes are way better at detecting shapes in the dark compared to normal dash cameras. However, I do not know what sensors and cameras the uber vehicle has. They "should" have some for night driving. But they can also be cutting corners...
