Daily Crunch: Waymo can go driverless in California

1. Waymo, take the wheel: Self-driving cars go fully driverless on California roads

Waymo said its driverless test cars will initially hit the streets near its Silicon Valley headquarters, including parts of Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and Palo Alto.
