A self-driving car from Waymo, a sister company of Google, was attacked by vandals in San Francisco. Video footage on social media shows how several people first smashed the windows of the vehicle and then exploded fireworks inside it. The taxi had no passengers on board, and no one was injured.
Self-driving cars are facing criticism in San Francisco. The fire brigade has expressed concerns about them blocking traffic, while Uber drivers are worried that they will lose their jobs due to their increasing popularity. Since the summer, vehicles from Waymo and rival Cruise have been allowed to offer taxi services 24 hours a day in San Francisco. However, Cruise’s cars have been idle since October after a pedestrian was dragged several meters by a robot taxi. Despite this incident, proponents believe that self-driving cars are still safer than those driven by humans.
