Driverless Cars and Illinois

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The state has an official plan when it comes to automated and connected cars, trucks and buses. Autonomous Illinois is a pathway forward to allow for testing of driverless vehicles. Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn says the doubters need to get with the times and realize the Illinois should set the pace in automated testing of vehicles.

Blankenhorn says driverless cars and trucks are going to be safer on the road. With over 1000 roadway deaths already this year and human error as a major factor in those deaths this a way to keep more people arriving alive.
