Recent legislative moves in Utah could see it as the first state to allow autonomous vehicles on all roads.

The measure, HB371, titled “Autonomous Vehicle Amendments” by the state’s House Transportation Committee, seeks to “amend provisions regarding traffic laws, licensing, and titling requirements” and “add new provisions regarding the operation of autonomous vehicles.”

In it, it proposes the allowance of self-driving vehicles on all roads, with different liability and insurance rules depending on the vehicle’s classification type. Classification type refers to the vehicle’s autonomy level, with varying rules of liability and insurance requirements for Levels 1 through Level 5, in addition to cars with and without human drivers.

The bill, acquiring a 10 to 0 vote by the committee on Feb. 21, has now been passed to the House for review

In a statement to the Salt Lake Tribune, the bill’s sponsor, representative Robert Spendlove, discusses its benefit to the state.

“There is a great opportunity because of Utah’s tech center…to really take a lead in this area,” Spendlove said. “We’ve got autonomous technology that is now being implemented in cars coming out on the road, and we have testing going on throughout the country.”

No word yet on its effective date, but Spendlove stated it could be pushed as late as mid-2019 while technologies change and more research is performed.

This initiative marks the latest, with similar legislation passed in Mich., Calif., Tenn., N.D., and other states which facilitate rules for testing of self-driving vehicles, such as Arizona’s 2018 executive order to allow Waymo’s driverless ride-sharing service to operate and California’s recent OK for self-driving cars to operate without human drivers.
