Arizona Welcomes Uber Self-Driving Program After It Ditches California

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A day after California forced Uber to halt the rollout of autonomous vehicles in the state, Arizona’s governor rolled out the welcome mat for the pilot program.

In a statement, Gov. Doug Ducey said Uber’s decision to move its self-driving cars to Arizona was due to California’s burdensome regulations.

“Arizona welcomes Uber self-driving cars with open arms and wide open roads. While California puts the brakes on innovation and change with more bureaucracy and more regulation, Arizona is paving the way for new technology and new businesses,” said Gov. Ducey.
