11/6/2023 - California sidelines GM Cruise’s driverless cars, cites safety risk
SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON, Oct 24 (Reuters) – California on Tuesday ordered General Motors’ (GM.N) Cruise unit to remove its driverless cars from state roads, calling the vehicles a risk to the public and saying the company had “misrepresented” the safety of the technology.
