NY Times: With a Push from Google, California Legalizes Driverless cars
- On Tuesday, Jerry Brown, the governor of California, signed into law a bill to legalize driverless cars. The bill had overwhelmingly passed the State Legislature. Google, which has been building these cars, says they are safer because they nearly eliminate human error.
Technically, cars that drive themselves are not illegal, because there is no law that says cars must have drivers.
