Arizona suspends Uber self-driving cars

PHOENIX — Arizona’s governor has told Uber it can no longer test self-driving cars in the state.

Gov. Doug Ducey sent a letter to Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi telling him the state has suspended Uber’s tests.

That comes a week after one of the ride-sharing company’s self-driving cars struck and killed a woman walking her bike across a street in Tempe, Arizona. Police and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the accident.

Authorities say the woman was not in a crosswalk, but Ducey called video of the crash “disturbing and alarming.”

Uber pulled all of its autonomous vehicles off roads nationwide following the accident.

Prior to the crash, Ducey had authorized self-driving cars to use the state’s roads even without a test driver behind the wheel. The car that killed the pedestrian last week did have a test driver inside at the time.
