Mayor Lee On Uber’s Removal Of Unpermitted Self-Driving Cars

Mayor Edwin M. Lee issued the following statement:

“We are pleased to hear that the DMV took enforcement action, which I strongly supported; consequently, Uber has removed its unpermitted self-driving vehicles from San Francisco’s streets.

I have always been a strong supporter of innovation and autonomous vehicle development and testing, but only under conditions that put human, bicyclist and pedestrian safety first.

San Francisco will continue to work with innovative companies while working with state legislators and agencies to keep our residents safe.“
