    Manufacturers must submit autonomous vehicles to third-party testing to verify the car's "ability to perform key driving maneuvers that are typically encountered in real-world driving conditions."

    That's not a bad idea to me, regular vehicles must be tested and still some get through with flaws, why not test the autonomous ones as well because you know there will be some flaws in them.

    A licensed driver with an autonomous vehicle operator certificate, issued by the California DMV, must be present in the vehicle at all times, "and must be capable of taking over immediate control in the event of an autonomous technology failure or other emergency." In addition, the operator will be responsible for all traffic violations that occur while operating the autonomous vehicle.

    I can't believe this wasn't already law, you must have a way to cite the car owner/driver in the event of a traffic violation, short of this you should still have to have a way to ticket the owner of the car, whether that be the CEO, Manager or an IT guy at the company running it.

    Manufacturers must apply for a permit, and submit monthly reports on performance, safety, and usage of autonomous vehicles, in order to test them on California roads. As a condition of the permit, "autonomous vehicles can only be operated by the manufacturer or made available to the public on no more than a leased basis." In other words, no privately-owned autonomous cars.

    Until all the quirks and things are worked out I really don't see a big problem by outlawing private ownership of these things. You know at some point they'll be normal, just not right now during their infancy.

    Manufacturers must also disclose to autonomous vehicle operators what information will be collected by the vehicle, and they must get written approval by the operators.

    Common sense privacy policy here I would think. Besides, most of the people using these things are going to sign or click "I agree" without reading the privacy policy put in front of them.

    I also don't have a problem with the law currently not allowing autonomous commercial vehicles, as I read this to mean 18-Wheelers and if there are already a lot of accidents with the cars, I'd hate to see the same with the big trucks. Even if the majority of the accidents are from human error in other cars.

      I'm not really sure I see your point. If we automate big trucks, then big trucks stop causing accidents. If a human driver is careless enough to rear end an 18-wheeler, there's not much we can do about that.
