Utah Bill Paves Way for Driverless Cars on Beehive State Roads

Lawmakers in Utah are considering legislation that would pave the way there for driverless cars.


The Utah House is set to hear a proposed bill that would allow autonomous cars and trucks on the state’s roads, the Deseret News reported.

The Beehive State’s laws are currently silent on whether driverless cars are allowed.

The bill (HB 371) also defines various autonomous functions, but it doesn’t address what many say will be one of the trickiest parts of regulating driverless cars – insurance.

The measure, sponsored by Rep. Robert Spendlove, cleared its final House committee on Feb. 21 and is ready for consideration by the full Utah House.
