Google’s driverless car will need more testing, watchdog group warns

The DMV said rules governing the public operation of self-driving cars are expected to be adopted by Jan. 1, 2015.

Consumer Watchdog wants to put that off for 18 months. That would allow for at least a full year of testing the self-driving cars under the new regulations and another six months for the DMV and the public to analyze the test results before an autonomous vehicle could be offered to the public.
“We call on the DMV to ensure the safety of the public is put well ahead of the self-serving agendas of the manufactures,” wrote Simpson.
