Google has been developing their self driving cars for quite some time now and while they’ve been having relative success with the program the idea of a driverless car was doomed from the start due to legal issues. Fortunately today the program might have gotten the support it so desperately needed in the form of legal support in California. Driverless cars could be the future of transportation and the good news is that municipalities around the country are slowly beginning to implement laws that would make it legal for Google and others to operate these cars.
Driverless cars will supposedly be nearly perfect when it comes to crashes and accidents and the good news is that this will save countless lives and thousands of dollars for millions of Americans. California is the first state pushing for legalization of this so that testing can begin and Google is at the forefront of the legal battle. If driverless cars are actually legalized it will open the world to testing and development from Google that will rapidly increase the rate at which these cars are being created. Google hasn’t publicly commented on the new developments but in the past Google has expressed strong concern with the laws banning autonomous cars. It might still be a few months before anything comes out of these legal proceedings but it is still great news for the automotive and tech industry alike.
