North Carolina HB 469 / S 337 modifies Chapter 20 of the General Statutes (GS) on Motor Vehicles to define autonomous vehicle terminology and ultimately regulate the operation of fully autonomous motor vehicles on public highways in the state of North Carolina. The bill would add a new article, “Regulation of Fully Autonomous Vehicles,” to General Statutes and amend several articles throughout the chapter.
The News & Observer – House Bill 469 passed the N.C. House Tuesday in a 119-1 vote and goes to the Senate. If it becomes law, North Carolina would have formal rules for autonomous vehicles for the first time.
