A 2012 California proposal to create safety standards for self-driving cars has yet to materialize because lawmakers, regulators, researchers, and government agencies do not know how to fully assess the technology, reports the Wall Street Journal. Google and other auto makers want to verify safety themselves, but law firm TroyGould and advocacy group Auto Reliability and Safety say third party testing is necessary, while a UC Berkeley transportation expert called the issue an "open question." The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration plans to test the technology "as it emerges... to inform future federal regulation," while the California DMV stated last week it's working quickly but doesn't want to release a premature ruling.
