In Florida (USA), a law has been passed that allows testing of autonomous vehicles without a person on board. It will take effect on July 1.

The document was signed by Governor Ron DeSantis, who noted that the adopted document will allow Florida to remain the world leader in technological advances and transport innovations.

The law states that passengers in autonomous vehicles will be exempt from liability due to distraction while driving. Thus, they can completely get a smartphone, watch movies or even sleep while driving.

However, each autonomous car will have to insure for $ 1 million. Owners of such vehicles should immediately report any accidents to the police or install a system on the vehicle that notifies the police offline.

Florida has become the third state in the US to allow the use of fully autonomous vehicles on the roads. Also unmanned cars can move on the roads of Michigan and Texas.
