New California Law Allows Self-Driving Cars

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- California Governor Jerry Brown is raising a few eyebrows once more after signing a bill Tuesday that allows self-driving cars on public roads in the Golden State.

Google engineers have made cars that don't require drivers a reality.

These vehicles appear to be just as conscientious as cars with drivers since they're aware of traffic lights and can adjust accordingly if there's an emergency.

Brown signed the law with the provision that there's someone in the driver's seat to take control if necessary while ordering the Department of Motor Vehicle to develop regulations for operation of these driver-less cars.
