Driving where Autonomous Uber hit Pedestrian at night.

I think it may be the section around 0:33 to 0:36. Here is a link to the original dashcam, which does seem suspiciously dark to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPvSS5PhO7M I don't know 100% where it happened as I've heard different stories, but it did not seem as dark as the Uber video. My footage is from my Pixel XL and looks pretty similar to real life. Sorry if I suck and narrating and staying in focus, and that I moved the camera away when driving by the news lady, just thought it would be cool to get a different view of the road at night other than the one the police felt comfortable releasing.

Comments from Youtube

k1dicarus : Just after 0:33 in this video is the spot the accident happend. Same tree and light. Also in the twitter video from the interior view you see that the driver only left the "christmas" lightings.

Rich Yates : pretty damning for uber

i. Mutt : Thank you for posting this. I thought the Uber video was very misleading, this just confirms my suspicions.

Andrew K : Thank you for trying to demystify this.

Bercik87 : aghrrr, losing focus on THE most important moment in the entire clip >_< It also got my attention, that it was suspiciously dark in that clip, nevertheless - when you cross the street -> LOOK AROUND.

Satyavan : But this doesn't explain nothing. The problem is not why the driver didn't see the pedestrian, the question is why the self-driving software didn't. Lidars and radars don't need any light at all.

Callan Christensen : Was this video taken on the same day you pushed it? 9 PM March 21, 2018?

gyrfalcon23 : way to stir the pot, dude

pkasb90 : It's a good technology and it will definitely bring down accident stats if adopted. The problem is it's just way too expensive.

Michael Wells : What time was this? I can't see a clock in the background. The accident was apparently about 10 pm, so that shouldn't matter. And BTW, the speed limit does change to 45, right as you leave the bridge.

feildmaster : 0:36 is the exact spot the uber would have been (You can tell by the right side dashes)

Bob Dole : You need a video before it happened. They probably fixed the light problem before the video was released CYA. That way there won't be any lawsuits.

jan simonides : Good job!

Ado Bluh : Were any street lights out on that day that got replaced after the accident?

lawrencecgn : The chills are downvoting this. lol.

razorree : is it safe to drive with your phone in your hand ?

SwiftHelix : I've seen videos where jaywalkers cause accidents between cars and they walk away free with no blame....unless they stay for the police report but I doubt they do.

AesirCorporation : 1:16 - idiot walking their bike on the shoulder instead of the sidewalk. SMH.

j p : Guess the pedestrian deserves no fault for failing to ensure the roadway was clear before crossing illegally? Furthermore, way to post a video about how a tragedy should have been prevented, by risking another tragedy to point out how blurry your focus was, pedestrians on the road, signs, the time, etc. I'm sure your eyes weren't on the road when you made those astute observations. There are two things disturbing about the fact that you turned to the pedestrian as you were passing - 1. Where you focus your eyes is where you generally tend to travel (in this case, toward the pedestrian) 2. Why did you not get over to the other lane to ensure the safety of the person in the shoulder (which is typically the law)?

Behindthefog : What part of jaywalking illegally did the homeless person not understand. I blame her not uber.

EccentricSM : Alex Jones is that you? How did you post this without Hillary and Soros stopping you! Keep doing the lords work patriot!

FullSpectrum Survivalist : I believe you are wrong about where it happened, but I believe you are right about them shadowing out light. Freeze your video here at 33 seconds, then open this video up here and freeze it at 3 seconds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPvSS5PhO7M&feature=youtu.be now un full size screen if it is and start looking at the blue on the left, the signs, streetlight etc, a bunch of stuff is missing because it's blacked out, but I believe this is the same place. In your video, you can clearly see everything. Notice the white bar at top right of the building on both videos. I'm pretty convinced that at 33 seconds on your video is where it happened.
