An Australian report suggests that drink-driving laws should not apply to people if they use self-driving cars, when the technology comes of age. With autonomous cars already being tested in Australia, the The National Transport Commission (NTC) has been looking at what legislative changes will be necessary when self-driving cars become common. In fact, the NCT believes that current laws could potentially be a “barrier” to the use of these cars, which are expected in commercial rollouts by 2020. The NTC recently published a report which looks into many different aspects of the laws that would need changing, such as whether the responsibility lies with the person in the car or the autonomous driving system.
