Frequent self-driving safety incidents have prompted California lawmakers to urge more regulation

in big tech companiesself-driving carAfter a series of security incidents were reported,CaliforniaLawmakers and unions united today to urge greater regulation of self-driving vehicles, especially self-driving trucks.

Reuters reported that a self-driving taxi operated by Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet, was hit by people celebrating the Lunar New Year on the 10th.arsonThis incineration was the most devastating attack ever on self-driving cars in the United States.

Last week, a Waymo self-driving car hit a cyclist at an urban intersection; Last October, a self-driving taxi owned by General Motors (Cruise) suffered a major accident. A self-driving taxi hit and injured a pedestrian. It stretches up to 6 metres.

People are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with self-driving incidents, including hitting cyclists and dragging pedestrians. Arson attacks on self-driving cars reflect this anger. California lawmakers are expected to pass two bills to push for stricter rules.

“These incidents are a wake-up call on the need for legislation,” said California Assemblyman Dave Cortez, who proposed giving cities the ability to regulate self-driving vehicle licenses and enforce self-driving laws. Currently, only state regulators control licensing.

Another bill would require self-driving vehicles weighing more than 10.01 pounds, including commercial trucks, to be driven by a trained human.

The California Legislature passed an initial version of the truck bill last year, but Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed it, arguing that the current regulatory framework was sufficient to ensure safety. However, in the wake of the Cruise self-driving car hitting a pedestrian, the bill was re-introduced in the state assembly on the 8th.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, one of the largest unions in the United States, has always opposed self-driving cars due to safety risks and unemployment, and supports these two bills.

Peter Finn, vice president of the International Teamsters Union, said the incidents with Cruise and Waymo “show that this technology is not ready for prime time, and we can’t trust these big technology companies to regulate themselves.”

Technology companies contribute greatly to California’s economy, and some view increased regulation of self-driving cars as problematic.

Waymo did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Cruise said the company mishandled the accident last October and offered to settle an investigation with California regulators.
