Capitol Watchdog: Upcoming Meetings to Watch

This week marks the first public hearing into the Department of Motor Vehicles' new draft regulations for robot cars. In December, the DMV came out with strong safety protections requiring cars have a steering wheel, gas and brake pedals so humans can take over the cars. Google attacked the rules, but proved the DMV's point when its own data showed that human drivers had to take control of Google robot cars 341 times to avoid a crash or because technology failed.

Consumer Watchdog will present new evidence at the upcoming Petroleum Market Advisory Committee meeting to show that refiners have used market power to raise gas prices. The committee will be discussing recommendations for the legislature on how to fix the California petroleum industry.

Details on these meetings and more, below.
