The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened a probe into the autonomous driving startup Waymo after receiving 22 reports of incidents. All occurred when the autonomous driving system was engaged or had only turned off moments before. The Jagar I-Pace EVs the Waymo fleet uses have reportedly crashed into stationary and non-stationary objects as well as violating raffic laws.
This news comes on the heels of the Alphabet-owned company being granted an expansion in San Francisco and Los Angeles, emboldening its efforts and giving it greater opportunities to interact with the public. While this probe is preliminary, the results could possibly bring a halt to the company's testing if investigators deem the vehicles unsafe.
