Handheld camera use while driving
Maybe a rival AV - and anyway it's AZ, which is where Uber went due to less restrictions than CA: So it's probably perfectly acceptable there
Just because it might be legal doesn't mean it's any less braindead than the AV that caused the original problem
Err... it wasn't me! (I thought that was obvious). However brain-dead it is, that doesn't lessen its role as evidence that the Uber / AZ police-released video does not accurately reflect how dark it wasn't on that road. Somehow the latest tech available on the Uber car's video is of poorer resolution and ability to distinguish objects than some random (as you say, brain-dead) driver with a hand-held 'phone. That (for me) smells of an attempt to excuse themselves and blame the victim.
As per http://bristolcars.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/the-uber-dev-team-just-killed-someone.html
.Without waiting for any analysis, police and others are already saying "it wasn't uber's fault". That's the wrong way to view it
