Autonomous Cars Need to Be Regulated
Guests: Sam Abuelsamid

Megan Morrone talks to Sam Abuelsamid from the Wheel Bearings podcast about the state of self-driving car regulation.

First reports said the crash was unavoidable, but now that police have released the video of the interior and exterior of the car many are calling those first reports into question. Why didn't the LIDAR see the pedestrian on the bicycle?
