Google self-driving car is now legal in Nevada

Posted on Tuesday, May 08 2012 @ 22:17:18 CEST by

Neowin spreads word that Google's self-driving car is now legal in Nevada as the state's Department of Motor Vehicles has issued the first license to operate a Google car:
The AP is reporting that Nevada's Department of Motor Vehicles has issued the first license to operate a Google car. Although officials were initially skeptical, Google proved that the vehicle was able to safely maneuver through the busy Las Vegas Strip where there's always a stream of people crossing roads and a never-ending parade of cars and bikes. The DMV's director, Bruce Breslow, even commented that the car "gets honked at more often because it's being safe."

While the auto-driving cars can take care of themselves, the Nevada license still requires two people to be in the vehicle at any time for safety purposes. One person is in the driver's seat and can override the computer by tapping the brake or moving the wheel while the second person watches a computer monitor that plots the course the car plans on taking. Once people become more comfortable with the cars, we expect these types of regulations to loosen up a bit.
