When the California Department Of Motor Vehicle ordered Uber to shut down their driverless car experiment in San Francisco, Uber did what any responsible company would do. They ignored the order. Apparently, the DMV doesn’t take kindly to being ignored.
In response, the state revoked the registration of Uber’s 16-car fleet of semi-autonomous cars. In a statement, they claimed that the registrations were “improperly issued” to test vehicles that weren’t properly marked as test vehicles. Since then, Uber has let it be known that their San Francisco experiment has been 86’ed. For now.
