The future is here.

Governor Rick Snyder has signed a law allowing driverless cars in Michigan.

Governor Snyder signed two new laws on Friday which allow the testing of driverless cars in Michigan.

The laws require that someone is in the drivers seat of the vehicle.

Freep.com has more:

Snyder says that businesses and universities in Michigan are leading the way in many intelligent, connected vehicle programs aimed at driverless cars.

One bill lets automakers and others test automated motor vehicles. It requires a human to be in the driver’s seat to monitor performance and intervene if necessary.

Another bill partly shields manufacturers from civil liability.

California and Florida also allow such testing.
