California Approves Testing Self-Driving Cars On Public Roads

I'm not saying anything bad about California, but this is one of the few states where self-driving cars could be an improvement compared to its human drivers. wink

On Tuesday, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) officially approved rules to allow the testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads. The rules will take effect September 16, 2014. The move has been a long time coming, with the DMV promising back in December 2013 that it would post regulations for public use of self-driving cars and then holding a public hearing in January to address concerns about them.
