Google Approved to Operate Self-Driving Cars in Nevada


(CNN) -- If you want to salute, race or flirt with other drivers in Nevada, you could soon be out of luck with some cars. That's because on Monday, Nevada became the first to approve a license for "autonomous vehicles" - in other words, cars that cruise, twist and turn without the need for a driver - on its roads.

(ABC) -- Nevada is putting the pedal to the metal on those autonomous automobiles. It was just two months ago that the state approved and set regulations that would allow self-driving vehicles on the state’s roadways. And today it announced that it has approved Google for the first testing license under the new rules.
