Autonomous vehicles are on the horizon, bringing with them many concerns. If there is an accident with one, who will be at fault, the owner or the manufacturer, are they truly ready to be on the roads without at least a safety driver present, and what if the equipment malfunctions?
Last week Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a law that takes effect July 1, that allows a self-driving car to operate without a human operator as long as it meets all insurance requirements. The law also exempts the occupants from standard laws against texting and other distractions. This law truly allows passengers to play video games on their phone while the vehicle takes them somewhere.
