Brussels and regulators under fire over ‘dieselgate’

European authorities have been accused of glaring errors, including halfhearted application of the rules and buck-passing among officials, that led to their failure to uncover the Volkswagen emissions scandal. A draft report by two lead members of a European Parliament investigative committee, released on Monday, points to a failure to uphold EU rules that could, and should, have been enough to detect cheating by the German carmaker in laboratory tests on emissions from diesel vehicles.

Uber admits to self-driving car ‘problem’ in bike lanes as safety concerns mount uber car

Uber has admitted that there is a “problem” with the way autonomous vehicles cross bike lanes, raising serious questions about the safety of cyclists days after the company announced it would openly defy California regulators over self-driving vehicles. An Uber spokeswoman said on Monday that engineers were working to fix a flaw in the programming that advocates feared could have deadly consequences for cyclists. Uber began piloting its self-driving vehicles in its home town of San Francisco last week, despite state officials’ declaration that the ride-share company needed special permits to test its technology. On day one, numerous autonomous vehicles – which have a driver in the front seat who can take control – were caught running red lights and committing a range of traffic violations.
