Uber, an American worldwide online transportation network company, has halted its test of self-driving cars in San Francisco following the decision of regulators to withdraw the registration of these cars, BBC reports on Thursday.
Earlier, the company’s clients were offered to booking a self-driving car as an option. However, the authorities demanded that Uber should get a special permit for vehicles’ testing, otherwise, a legal action can be brought against the company.
According to Uber representatives, the permit is not required, since the car is not fully autonomous and a safety driver is provided.
San Francisco is the second city, where Uber conducts these tests. It is noteworthy that in Pittsburgh, the company has not confronted opposition on the part of local authorities.
