The chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board says Uber had an ineffective safety culture when one of its autonomous test vehicles ran down and killed a pedestrian last year in Tempe, Arizona.

Uber’s own system also didn’t have the ability to brake automatically, relying on a human backup driver to do the braking. (Tempe Police Department via AP, File)
