California regulators have voted to allow Waymo and Cruise to expand their driverless taxi services in San Francisco. The decision is a major milestone for the commercialization of self-driving car technology. Supporters of the expansion say it will make the city’s streets safer and more accessible to people with disabilities, while opponents worry that it will put jobs at risk and raise safety concerns. The companies have been testing their driverless taxi services in San Francisco for several years and have a combined fleet of about 500 cars. They say they will continue to work closely with regulators and other stakeholders to ensure the safety of their services.
