Nevada approves regulations for self-driving cars
Nevada becomes 1st in nation to regulate self-driving cars; technology still in testing phase
By The Associated Press

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) ' Nevada is becoming the first state to regulate self-driving vehicles on its roadways.

The state's legislative commission on Wednesday approved regulations that were vetted by car manufacturers, insurance companies, law enforcement officials and others.

Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles Director Bruce Breslow says the DMV is now developing licensing procedures for companies that want to test self-driving cars in Nevada.



Gov. Brian Sandoval test-drove a self-driving Toyota Prius in July. The car being developed by Google Inc. uses radar, sensors and computers that allow the vehicle to drive itself, though human drivers can override the autopilot function.

Breslow says self-driving test cars will use red license plates. When the technology is ready for use by the general public, the cars will display green license plates.
