California proposes new rules for self-driving vehicles

On 7th April, The California Public Utilities Commission proposed new rules that could clear the way for self-driving companies to give people a ride without any backup driver present. The proposal states that it requires that autonomous vehicles companies hold an autonomous vehicle testing permit from California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for at least 90 days before picking up passengers. The rules come as regulators for people who are taking a harder look at self driving cars due to the Uber crash last month in Arizona. Passengers picked up must be at least 18 years of age and companies are required to file regular reports regarding the distance their self-driving cars travel every month.
