The Silver State is a great place to be if you’re a fan of losing a bunch of money on games of chance, nuclear testing grounds, or, apparently, driverless cars. Yesterday, the state approved rules on operating those creepy Google cars that have no humans in the wheel yet somehow don’t kill people constantly.
The rules state that
- Companies must post a 1-3 million dollar bond for testing the cars.
- Two humans must be in the car at all times.
- Cars must have black box recorders. I guess that’s so we can listen to the foreboding signs of the robopocalypse.
