Uber won't back down from self-driving car fight with DMV All Autonomous testers got their CA DMV permits but UBER got their cars without DMV Autonomous Tester permit. It was fine until some one caught its autonomous car didn't stop for a red light at a pedestrian cross walk when the pedestrian already started to cross the street. That's when DMV told UBER that dude, you need to get the permit. UBER is now arguing that it does not require a permit because its operation is no different than Tesla Autopilot as "a driver can remove their hands from the wheel and their feet from the pedals. They're required to still keep their eyes on the road, and may need to retake control at any time." What do you think?
