Self-driving car goes up in flames as fireworks are set off during Chinese New Year celebrations in San Francisco

In recent news, a self-driving car from Waymo, a sister company of Google, fell victim to vandals in San Francisco. Video footage on social media shows how several people first smashed the windows of the vehicle and then exploded fireworks in the robot taxi, after which it burned out completely. The incident happened in Chinatown, where many people were out celebrating Chinese New Year. The taxi had no passengers on board, and no one was injured.

Self-driving cars are increasingly under fire in San Francisco due to various reasons such as traffic congestion and job losses for Uber drivers. Since the summer, vehicles from Waymo and rival Cruise have been allowed to offer taxi services 24 hours a day in San Francisco. However, Cruise’s cars have been idle since October after a pedestrian was dragged several meters by a robot taxi. Proponents believe that self-driving cars are still safer than vehicles driven by humans.
