But seeing is believing.


Human vision is also only the detecting of case patterns in a limited spectrum. Cars and Superman can even have X-ray vision. Humans cannot.

Must have been using X-ray vision to see right through her because it didn't brake and hit her at 48 mph. The human saw her when he looked up, granted too late to do anything, but the car didn't see her at all.

Of course. That explains it. X-ray vision only saw a bicycle that was between the victim and that Uber car. Uber software has contempt for bicycles. So it tried to kill one. Of course. That explains everything.

And I just though it was SUVs and excessively high pickup trucks that had so much contempt for bicycles. Silly me.

Apparently the Uber car, a Volvo, had its own collision avoidance system, and the manufacturer of that system wants everyone to know that it had been turned off.

Probably standard when testing Uber's own systems, but an interesting note.
