California Proposes Strict Auto Auto Rules

The state of California wants to make auto auto requirements very tight, at least initially. “Some of Senate Bill 1298’s regulations include requiring additional certification, not only from the automaker, but also from a third-party organization. There will be a new ‘autonomous vehicle operator certificate,’ and a certificate holder must be present in any self-driving car on the road, in the event he or she needs to take control of the vehicle. To that end, California will also require any autonomous vehicle to possess physical controls like a steering wheel.” As you might imagine, Google ain’t happy.
