Public hearing held over regulating safety of self-driven vehicles
California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) held a meeting in Sacramento to conceive of ways to regulate safety standards for self-driving cars. Self-driven cars aren’t yet on the market, but they are expected to be in circulation sooner than later.
At the Sacramento DMV meeting, questions were raised over safety logistics, namely, whether a person needs to be behind the wheel of the car, how insurance rates will change because of the new technology, and if the cars will really protect people from car accidents.
Under a 2012 California law, the state must create a set of rules that will enable these autonomous vehicles to drive on public roads and highways by this year.
Safety should be a priority for regulators and drivers. If you have been injured because of another driver’s carelessness, you could be eligible to pursue compensation.
