Following the Department of Transportation’s timid self-driving regulations, California governor Jerry Brown has greenlit a bill that provides driverless cars with a zone to test without the need for a steering wheel, brake or accelerate pedal, or human test driver.
The new rules are filled with restrictions to avoid Google and Tesla pushing fully autonomous cars throughout California. The cars can only drive in designated areas, must have a top speed of 35mph, and must be insured for $5 million to drive on public roads
