We’ve talked about Google’s self-driving cars before, and now they’ve taken another step forward. I doubt I’m alone in wishing for a car that could drive itself, especially for those long drives in the middle of the night when you roll down the windows and turn up the radio to keep awake. The whole notion of self-driving cars becoming a reality just crept a little closer with Nevada’s decision.
As a sort of icing on the cake, the regulations were even approved of by police and insurance companies, two groups I’d have thought would have been the most likely suspects to impede progress. The Google test cars will be given red license plates to differentiate them from other cars.
