Nevada drivers don't have the best reputation. Something about us, oh, driving like eyeless children who had LSD-flavored Gogurt for breakfast. Well, the roads may get a bit more interesting if we let automated cars on the road, a prospect the Nevada Legislature is considering. A Stanford wonk shares his thoughts on what he considers a promising idea:
Is it lawful for a car to drive itself? In the absence of any law to the contrary, it should well be. A new bill is working its way through the Nevada state legislature that would remove any doubt in that state. A.B. 511 directs the Nevada Department of Transportation to authorize autonomous vehicle testing in certain geographic areas of Nevada. Should vehicles meet Nevada DOT standards, they would be permitted to "operate on a highway."
