Ohio Allows Testing Self-Driving Vehicles On State Roads

On Wednesday, Ohio became the latest U.S. state to open its roads for testing self-driving vehicles, in a boost to an emerging industry that continues to face scrutiny over safety concerns. Republican Governor John Kasich said that the self-driving vehicles should meet safety requirements and comply with Ohio’s traffic laws. The Ohio order mandates that the self-driving vehicles register with Drive Ohio, and have designated operators to monitor the vehicles and report accidents.
