Automated Driving Motor Vehicles

Concerning authorization for automated driving systems to control motor vehicles throughout Colorado.
2017 Regular Session
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

The bill declares that the regulation of automated driving systems is a matter of statewide concern, and, therefore, local authorities are prohibited from setting different standards for these systems than for human drivers. The use of automated driving systems is authorized if the system is capable of conforming to every state and federal law applying to driving. If not, a person testing a system is required to obtain approval from the Colorado state patrol and the Colorado department of transportation.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
