Regulating Autonomous Vehicles in Texas [SB 2205]

Senate Bill 2205, which took effect on September 1st, 2017, permits the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to govern the operation of automated motor vehicles, and prohibits political subdivisions (e.g., cities, towns, and districts) and state agencies from regulating the operation of such vehicles. The law allows driverless vehicles to be tested on Texas roads, and the measure lays the groundwork for these vehicles to someday be driven/produced in the state by allowing continued testing.
