Cheddar Afternoon Business Update 11/9: Self driving bus gets hit

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

Not so fast for self-driving buses in Las Vegas. The city debuted a new self-driving shuttle service on Wednesday, and one of the buses got into a minor accident with a delivery truck. But city officials blame the truck driver and say the accident wouldn't have happened if the truck had the same sensors as the self-driving bus.

Meanwhile, Uber is joining several other smaller tech firms to get their drivers signed up for Obamacare. The company says the campaign is not a political statement, but a move to improve its relationships with drivers.
Uber currently considers those workers as contractors, rather than employees, so doesn't provide benefits like health insurance.

And, a different kind of keg stand. Hidden Valley is selling 5-liter kegs full of ranch dressing -- by their estimation, a year's worth of the sauce.
The keg is lined with a special FDA-approved coating to make sure the dressing doesn't go bad.
