Driverless cars coming soon to a California road near you9/1/2012
Drivers in California may soon find themselves sharing the road with driverless cars. A bill passed by the state's legislature gave the OK to introduce driverless cars onto streets in the next 10 years. The bill gives the California DMV until 2015 to figure out a new set of rules and procedures for cars that would cruise around on autopilot, but a human being would still be required to sit behind the wheel in case the automatic functions failed — or decided to rebel against their human overlords. No word yet on whether an automatic middle finger feature is being incorporated in new designs. [Source]
