Default Driverless-car rules loosen: U.S. regulator stops demanding safety assessments

http://www.latimes.com/business/auto...912-story.html

Quote:
Under that directive, automakers and technology companies will be asked to voluntarily submit safety assessments to the U.S. Department of Transportation, but they donít have to do it.

And states are being advised to use a light regulatory hand.
Just in case it isn't clear what this means:
Quote:
[Transportation Secretary]Chao said she supports new legislation working its way through Congress to support driverless-car development. Last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would let automakers each put up to 25,000 cars on the road even if some features donít meet current safety standards. Over three years, the cap would rise.
