The Autonomous cars on the California roads
|   Friday, May 25, 2012
A fleet of the self- driving vehicles produced by Google will be sent to California. The senate of the state has passed the bill that these cars can be tested and run on the roads of the country without any interruption. This bill that was approved this week was passed by the vote of almost thirty seven people. It states all the rules within which these cars could be driven on the roads of the city.

The senator of California, Alex Padilla spoke to the LA Times that the sole reason why these autonomous vehicles were motivated was that it will prevent from various injuries caused by accidents and it would save lives of people.
Another reason for allowing these cars was the fact that they will reduce the pressure of traffic on the roads.

Alex Padilla also said that road accidents are usually caused because of our own negligence. However, if with the use of technology we could reduce the ratio of road accidents then nothing can be better than that. This will ultimately reduce the ratio of injuries caused due to accidents on the roads of California. He said that he allowed the bill for the sole purpose that it was related with the security and safety of the people traveling on the road whether they are pedestrians or the vehicle drivers.
Countries such as Hawaii, Arizona, Oklahoma and Florida are also looking forward to pass such bills that could protect the safety of the citizens. They also want that people remain safe by driving autonomous vehicles on the roads.

Other than California, another state of the USA named Nevada has also permitted to register the autonomous vehicles so that the threats related to lives of people traveling on the road may be minimized. Nevada awarded Google with the very 1st license for launching autonomous vehicles.

This vehicle can only be driven once its license is allotted. Even the companies that will be manufacturing these autonomous vehicles will be given license for making them. It has been said that when the autonomous vehicles will be on the road, then there must be at least 2 people present in the vehicle.

The autonomous vehicles that will be tested in California must meet up all the standards of safety set by the federal authorities. Other requirements related to the vehicles will be met by the CHP and the DMV. Just like other vehicles, these cars also need to be driven by licensed drivers.

The autonomous vehicles will be featuring various sensors and computer technologies with the help of which the person driving the vehicle will be able to make the analysis of the environment beforehand and thus he will be able to control the vehicle in a safer way than before. This will thus enable him to take control of any unfavorable situation which will reduce the chances of accidents.

When such vehicles will be there on the roads, then people will certainly be safe and the death ratio resulting from tragic accidents will be minimized.
