Nothing says “the future is here” quite like self-driving cars! The fact that self-driving cars are already out on the road is pretty amazing. However, some new proposed legislation in California might send us even farther into the future! California lawmakers are proposing legislation that would make self-driving cars allowed to go without some key parts.
These cars would lack steering wheels, brakes, or human drivers!
Self-driving cars without these key features would have to be tested on a controlled track or a computer simulation.
After they’re deemed safe, they would be allowed to be on the road. In case you’re worried, the cars still have mechanisms that help them steer and brake. Just not in the classic wheel and brake in the sense that we’re used to. And the human that usually sits in the passenger seat would be replaced by a human over intercom.
