"This technology has the chance to really make a difference in that rate, and that is why we are so excited to expand," Krafcik said. Interviewed by Fox Business News anchor Liz Claman, Krafcik explained how Waymo's self-driving cars can take riders safely home no matter the weather, road condition or traffic.
