Even before I wrote yesterday’s post, Uber, refusing to apply for permits to run driverless cars in the city, had their vehicles officially booted from the Streets of San Francisco. Uber sent them by truck to Arizona, where a coalition of douchebags was waiting to greet them warmly, based on the company’s disdain for permits alone.

Uber says it’s a matter of principle to run these autonomous vehicles in the city before they’re ready to run safely. Really did say that. SF Bicycle Coalition is on their case as the vehicles are observed flailing around bike lanes and running red lights. Is SFBC an ant standing in the way of an elephant? Wait, not an elephant. Elephants are very cool. An ant standing in the way of a steamroller? A DRIVERLESS STEAMROLLER?
