SALT LAKE CITY — As Congress works to clear the path for the quickly advancing realm of autonomous vehicles, Utah legislators are considering their own slate of tasks to help put driverless cars on the highways and byways of the Beehive State.
And the expected regulatory changes will not be coming a moment too soon as manufacturers in the U.S. and elsewhere are poised to put partly autonomous (Level 3) vehicles on U.S. roads as early as 2018, with production of fully autonomous (Level 5) cars, trucks and SUVs likely in the next three to four years.
