Indiana Legislature prepares law to address driverless cars

State Sen. Jim Merritt, an Indianapolis Republican and a member of the Legislative Transportaton Committee, said, “There are so many people who are behind the idea of autonomous vehicles that we have to create a framework in state government to allow them.”

Which is where State Rep. Ed Soliday’s driverless vehicles bill comes in. The Valparaiso Republican’s bill already passed both chambers.

Soliday said, “It encourages testing and research in Indiana on autonomous vehicles but, at the same time, assures public safety.”
