Congress takes a ride in driverless car

Look Congress, no hands!
On Tuesday,  lawmakers went for a spin in a driver-less Cadillac. The hands-free car rides were organized by Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), who has been championing the new technology ever since he went for a test ride in the driver-less car last year. Shuster thought it important that his fellow policymakers experience autonomous driving as well, The Hill reports, and so he had the car sent up from Carnegie Mellon University, which is in Shuster’s home state, to Capitol Hill on Tuesday. By the day’s end, the car had successfully chauffeured 18 lawmakers through DC traffic and highways.
