On March 19, 2021, Ariel Wolf was quoted by NBC Arizona on Arizona’s first bill to impose any regulations on the self-driving car industry.
According to the article, HB-2813 adds self-driving cars to state driving law. Among other things, it spells out what a self-driving car must do after a crash and that it should follow the same rules of the road as cars with drivers. Those are things that have never been on the books, despite Arizona having had self-driving cars for more than 10 years.
“This legislation provides for a safety framework," said Wolf. “The industry here in Arizona is really in a close partnership with the Arizona Department of Transportation, and law enforcement.”
