California Says Driverless Cars Must Have Drivers – IEEE Spectrum

Posted: Thursday, December 17, 2015

Two developments yesterday have strengthened the rent-rather-than-own model of driverless cars: California issued tough driverless regulations, and Google is reportedly setting up a standalone company specializing in ride shares.

California’s department of motor vehicles finally released a draft version of the regulations, a full year later than the deadline set by the state legislature. It requires not only that a driver sit behind an actual steering wheel—unlike the most outré Google design, which has no steering wheel at all—but also that vendors lease rather than sell the cars to consumers.
