Pathway Open For Autonomous Cars To Be On California Roads

California opens road to public use of autonomous cars

California has published the world's first regulations dealing with the routine use of autonomous cars on city streets -- a big step toward the day when computers, not humans, are in charge of cars.
But the draft rules published on Wednesday don't go as far as some companies might have hoped. For now, they specifically exclude fully autonomous driverless cars that wouldn't even have a steering wheel.
Currently, use of autonomous vehicles has been restricted to trained employees of companies like Google, Mercedes Benz and Toyota, but the draft rules propose the general public be allowed to operate the vehicles.
