Google and ride-sharing opponents Lyft and Uber have formed a coalition that is unlikely to try to influence politicians and direct upcoming self-driving car regulations in their own benefit.
Strickland left the authorities for work in a lobbying company in 2014.

Google has been developing self- driving cars when the state did not remove the condition for a steering wheel, and was dealt a setback in California — something Google had desired.
Uber has been investigating self-driving car technology and stands to rid itself of its labour pains if it can automate its fleet and make significantly more money.
