Uber bails on Arizona driverless program not because it killed someone but because "there’s been a public call for the suspension". (Where's the charge for involuntary manslaughter?)  https://arstechnica.com/cars/2018/05/uber-shuts-down-arizona-testing-after-march-self-driving-death/ 

Pay no attention to the dead pedestrian, though. Uber is buying a PR win and cheap political points in France by putting a paltry €4M/year into "flying taxies" 🙄  https://www.theverge.com/2018/5/24/17387242/uber-elevate-flying-taxi-paris-advanced-technologies-center 

Oh, and Uber also planned to restart driverless tests in Pittsburgh without telling the mayor or other officials there 👌  http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/05/23/uber-shutting-down-self-driving-cars-in-arizona-will-focus-on-pittsburgh/
