A video posted on social media on Saturday (February 10) showed a large crowd surrounding and vandalising a self-driving taxi in San Francisco before it was set on fire.
Fireworks were thrown inside the Waymo robotaxi causing it to catch fire, San Francisco Fire Department said in a statement on social media.
Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous driving unit, has sought to expand its driverless service in Los Angeles, where it is now testing rides and allowing new rides only by invitation.
But robot car companies have run into resistance from some lawmakers and citizens who fear the vehicles are as yet unproven and pose a safety risk.
