tesla. he was driving on the florida turnpike when his car slammed into a ford fiesta that was stopped and blocking a lane. according to the lawsuit the autopilot feature never alerted him to that part car. let's if you drive and santa clara county do not be surprised to see this. a car on the road that has no driver or a backup driver. the dmv issued its first permit to waymo and they can start in santa clara county. joining me is tim higgins life from second -- san francisco. what is your feel of putting these vehicles on the road? >> waymo has been doing this in the silicon valley for several years. they have accumulated millions of miles. they have had a safety operator behind the wheel ready to take control if that person didn't
4:19 pm
think they were handling the situation. does not going to be anybody there. the computer has been trained to put itself in a position if it doesn't understand or it gets too complicated it goes to a safe status. that will be one of the challenges. seeing these cars on the freeway without people in them. >> they will top out at 65 miles per hour. they will be in mountain view, sunnyvale, palo alto. what should drivers know when they see these vehicles on the road? >> one of the things we have seen is these test vehicles, human drivers tend to run into them. fender bender's are quite prolific. in this case it illustrates the world is messy and we humans get into a lot of crashes that we don't rise to the level of
4:20 pm
being in the news on a regular basis. so this has underscored the dangerous nature of driving. one of the reasons why waymo and other self driving companies are pushing their technology is because they can make driving safer. >> they had to come up with plans that had to help law enforcement and first responders interact. what could that be? >> we have seen down in chandler outside of phoenix, they have worked really hard with the local emergency officials and train the cars to understand the sirens and what to do in an emergency scenario. the company has been working with local food -- local officials as well. it is a tricky human element. a human driver you understand lights are behind you and you have to pull over where it's safe. a robot has to be trained how
4:21 pm
to do that. >> let's move to the not fully autonomous version. the driver admits he was looking down at his phone and looking at the road at the same time when his tesla crashed into another vehicle. if drivers and nor tesla's direction are they still at fault? >> this is semi autonomous and not self driving. the human needs to pay attention because the way the systems are tuned they use radar to see things down the road. the problem with radar is that is very messy. they can tell the difference between a bridge or a truck or a manhole cover. so if that car in front of you is not actually moving, it might not see it. that's why these tesla's are crashing into the back of trucks on highways. the system does not see it and
4:22 pm
that is why tesla says you have to pay attention to the roadway. >> hudson said tesla is marketing the feature. it is in the manual he can take the victim over 50 miles per hour and auto power. he was going 80 miles an hour when he crashed. his impression from the marketing and from the dealership is that you can put autopilot on at any time you want. is there a problem with that message? is it getting through to drivers? >> elon musk has a knowledged that one of the challenges they have with the system it's pretty good and people that use it regularly become overconfident in its ability. they think it becomes a self driving car and the focus is keeping their attention. the company has ratcheted up those efforts that will turn the system off if the person
4:23 pm
hasn't touched the wheel in a certain amount of time. if you compare that to general motors or audi they have put in extra technology and a camera to attract the users eyes to make sure the person is looking at the roadway and not watching tv or something like that. one of the debate is whether tesla has done enough. >> he suffered a broken neck. didn't tesla recently settled a class-action suit over autopilot feature's on their vehicles? >> there was an issue where tesla was selling the fully driving systems that kick in at a certain point. they settled a lawsuit on that for a little bit of money. the company has been cleared they are fully self driving system is not fully self driving yet. that is for the future. tim higgins, thank you for your insight into this technology were heading into. we all know kids love the magic of halloween.

4:36 pm

4:47 pm
best way to go. if you don't have that option, inspect each candy. when in doubt, throw it out. >> i know a lot of people may see that is going overboard but you cannot be too cautious. thank you for coming in tonight. i hope everyone out there has a nice halloween. mark, you could not have done any better. >> we are very excited about the forecast for this evening. no rain threat at all. it was a warm day with temperatures in the 70s and 80s. we are tracking mild conditions across the bay area. take a look at the halloween forecast. a few high clouds. they are streaming in from the north. lower 60s to lower 70s. by late in the evening temperatures in the 50s, 53-58 degrees. you can see the clouds arcing up and over the bay area and
