Google lobbies Nevada to make self-driving vehicles legal

May 11, 2011 Full story: www.examiner.com 10
It's not clear why they have chosen Nevada, but Google is lobbying that state, trying to get legislation enacted which would make Nevada the first to legalize self-driving cars. We wrote about Google's driving ambition for automated vehicles earlier. Full Story

I am all for self driving cars because then you could be drunk or on hard drugs while driving and it would be ok.

I thought we already had "Self Driving Cars". Cars that decide to go fast with stuck gas petals for example (at least that's what I tell the cop when I get stopped). Also speaking of fast, cars that decide to go fast (brakes go out) when going down a hill.

Then there are always the slower/not moving cars. You decide to drive the freeway on a hot day (supposed to be going fast being a freeway), but the car decides to go slow and overheats, then stops when you want it to go (normally in one of the middle of the road lanes).

Yes, I have too much time on my hands.

I personally don't hardly ever drive drunk and stoned and don't ever do hard drugs,maybe occaisionally stoned but I am experienced. but a self driving car could end the rational for a war on drugs or a major part of the rational for a war on drugs and I am in favor of that. I would say I am not idiot enough.

It is actually only an unofficial mission statement of google's, "To Do Know Evil...Knievel."

The official mission statement actually is, "To Organize The World's Information And Make It Self-Driving And Handicap Accessible."

Many people are unaware of this.

"...Handicapped Accessible" is correct.

(Wouldn't want to get sued by google for misstating anything.)

They chose Nevada because most of them are nuts. Afterall, they did re-elect Reid.
