Michigan may soon become the first state to allow self-driving cars on the road without a human driver sitting behind the steering wheel
Lots of companies are already testing self-driving cars on the road all over the country, but they have an actual driver at the controls, ready to take over if there is a hazard.
Now a bill in Michigan proposes to allow these cars to hit the road without a human at the wheel. The legislation is being proposed as an economic development measure to keep and attract research and development jobs in the state. The state senate's economic development committee will hold a hearing on the bill on Wednesday, and its sponsor says it has bipartisan support that should make passage fairly easy.http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/27/technology/michigan-self-driving-car-legislation/index.html
