GM’s Cruise robotaxi service faces potential fine in alleged cover-up of San Francisco accident

AP Technology Writer

California regulators say a San Francisco robotaxi service owned by General Motors covered up an accident involving one of its driverless cars, raising the specter they may add a fine to the recent suspension of its California license. The potential penalty facing GM’s Cruise service could be around $1.5 million, based on documents filed by the California Public Utilities Commission late last week. The notice orders Cruise to appear at a Feb. 6 evidentiary hearing to determine whether the robotaxi service misled regulators about an October accident involving one of its driverless cars in San Francisco.
