Colorado considers legalizing self-driving cars

Standard

DENVER – State lawmakers will consider a law that would allow driverless cars on Colorado roads with only one very simple requirement: if it can follow traffic laws, it’s street legal.The state senate already passed SB 213. On Wednesday afternoon, the bill gets its first house hearing in the transportation committee.The bill as passed by the senate relies somewhat on the honor system.To put a self-driving car on the road, it does not require any certification of roadworthiness. However, if the vehicle is not capable of obeying all traffic laws, it does require the state transportation department and state patrol to sign off on tests of the self-driving system.
