The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has revoked Cruise's permits to test and operate fully driverless vehicles on the state's roads. This decision was made because Cruise, which is GM's self-driving vehicle technology subsidiary, did not provide video and information about a crash involving a pedestrian. The suspension only applies to vehicles without a safety driver present. The DMV also stated that Cruise misrepresented information related to the safety of its autonomous technology. The specific incidents or communications that led to the suspensions were not mentioned in the DMV notice. One incident involved a Cruise vehicle hitting a pedestrian in downtown San Francisco, dragging them along the road for 20 feet. Cruise claims to have proactively reached out to state and federal regulators following the incident. The DMV alleges that Cruise did not disclose the dragging incident to regulators and only provided a partial video of the incident initially. Cruise denies withholding any video and states that it shared a full video with the DMV when the incident was first reported. The DMV has provided steps for Cruise to apply for reinstatement of its suspended permits, which will only be approved once the company fulfills the requirements to the DMV's satisfaction. Cruise will continue its driverless fleet operations in Phoenix, Arizona, and Austin, Texas.
