New law clears the way for driverless cars on Texas roads | The Texas Tribune

New law clears the way for driverless cars on Texas roads | The Texas Tribune: Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill Thursday that signals to Google, Uber and carmakers that they are welcome to test self-driving cars on the state’s roads and highways without a driver behind the wheel.�There was nothing in existing law that banned autonomous vehicles from Texas roads. After all, Google has�been testing them since 2015�in Austin, and Arlington is rolling them out. And several Texas sites were chosen by the U.S. Department of Transportation�to test the technology in closed-course settings. Yet because state statutes didn’t address the emerging technology at all, some manufacturers have told state officials they were wary about testing vehicles alongside street and highway traffic in Texas.
