Arizona Governor Doug Ducey welcomed the arrival of a fleet of Uber self-driving cars transported from California, that was delivered via a self-driving truck.
According to the Ducey's office, the truck carrying the self-driving Volvos at the State Capitol in Phoenix was welcomed by the governor.
The move was taken after the state of California revoked the registrations for 16 self-driving Volvos operated by Uber.
The Arizona Department of Transportation said in a statement, "Part of what makes Arizona an ideal place for Uber and other companies to test autonomous vehicle technology is that there are no special permits or licensing required."
"Autonomous vehicles have the same registration requirements In Arizona as any other vehicle, and nothing in state law prevents testing autonomous vehicles," it said.
Governor Doug Ducey said in his emailed statement, “ the US State of Arizona welcomes Uber self-driving cars with open arms and wide open roads."
"While California puts the brakes on innovation and change with more bureaucracy and more regulation, Arizona is paving the way for new technology and new businesses."
"This is about economic development, but it’s also about changing the way we live and work. California may not want you, but we do,” Ducey added.
