Two measures dealing with the use of technology in both the regulation of cars and the operation of cars have been advanced by Kentucky lawmakers. One law would make it possible for traffic cameras to ticket you for speeding through a work zone. Another law relates to autonomous vehicles, which are autos that operate with little to no human intervention.
Technology is driving innovation in laws as well as vehicles.
As camera and speed tracking technology continues to advance, some places have already begun using cameras to track speed and issue tickets.
Autonomous vehicles are the predicted future of driving in the United States and around the world. The bill would smooth the path for autonomous vehicles in the state, allowing for faster deployment of the technology.
The bills have passed out of committee. They will go to the full House floor, where there is expected to be opposition.
