Following a crash that resulted in a fatality last week, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suspended Uber from testing self-driving cars on the state's public roads, according to 12News. The incident is still under investigation and Uber had already paused its testing.

Why it matters: Despite the wide enthusiasm for autonomous driving's potential to make roads safer, it was only a matter of time before a serious accident raised questions about the safety of testing.
