The test track that the turbine car was filmed on, is about  14 miles east of where I live .

GM stopped doing any testing here about 12 years ago .

The YouTube video, is a dual purpose bike rider riding through the overgrown facility .

The current hot weather testing site for GM, is in Yuma, AZ., on the Aridzona / California border, they moved due to encroaching suburbia and they couldn't keep much of a secret anymore .

A little bit of info, bicyclist crossing in the middle of a street ( not in a cross walk ) with poor lighting  conditions .
The Uber vehicle was in full autonomous mode with a human driver in the vehicle in the drivers seat .

Kinda surprised this made international news .

This was in the area of Arizona State University, student population of about 73,000 , with a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic  seven days a week .

It was only a matter of time before something like this happened .

I see these self driving vehicles on the residential street I live on quite frequently every day .

I just saw the video of the collision, my view, is that if a person was in command of the vehicle at the time, I think the outcome would have been the same .
