Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey suspended Uber’s testing of autonomous cars in Arizona yesterday with a letter citing the company’s “unquestionable failure” to comply with Arizona’s safety expectations for the industry.

In follow-up Tweets, he said he brought self-driving cars here to “test and flourish … but public safety comes first."

Daisuke Wakabayashi has reported extensively on Uber and the self-driving car industry for the The New York Times and he joined The Show to talk about the impact of Arizona's decision.

The Show also turned to attorney Jonathan Frutkin to get perspective on how Uber’s shutdown might affect Arizonans.
