Google Expanding Self-Driving Vehicle Testing To Phoenix

If you live in Phoenix, Arizona you've better keep your eyes peeled for Google's self-driving cars. Actually, it's probably a better idea that you aren't on the lookout for Google's cars. Paying too much attention to Google's self-driving cars seems to be more of a danger than the autonomous vehicles are themselves.

Alphabet Inc is expanding its testing of self-driving cars to the Phoenix, Arizona metro area, the company said on Thursday, making it the fourth U.S. city to serve as a proving ground for the autonomous vehicles. The company's Google unit has conducted driverless vehicle testing for six years in Mountain View, California, where it is based, and expanded testing to Austin, Texas last summer. In February, Kirkland, Washington, which is home to significant wet weather, was added as a testing site.
