NHTSA’s recognition of self-driving software as drivers raises questions about liability.

In a detailed report, the Washington Post (2/17, Fung, 8.98M) analyzes the impact the NHTSA’s decision to recognize of Google’s self-driving software as a “driver” will have on liability. The article suggests that with the car’s software as the legal “driver,” automakers “may assume greater responsibility for crashes.” The article goes on to share policymakers, insurance companies, and experts’ perspectives on the issue. The article concludes that currently, many companies and states are still in a stage where they are trying to understand the implications of NHTSA’s decision.
