New Law Allows Driverless Cars On Michigan Roads


driverless-carGov. Rick Snyder has signed a law allowing companies to test driverless cars on Michigan roads.

But there’s a key point: Someone must be in the car.

In a statement Friday, Snyder says the law is important to keep Michigan involved in research and development of car technology. He also mentioned a need for the law in his 2013 State of the State speech.

“Michigan is the automotive capital of the world,” he said. “By allowing the testing of automated, driverless cars today, we will stay at the forefront in automotive technological advances that will make driving safer and more efficient in the future.”
