Google is telling the California Department of Motor Vehicles that if proposed regulations are enacted that require a human driver behind the wheel, capable of taking control of a self-driving robot car, the company will take the vehicles elsewhere.

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.

There is new proof that California's Department of Motor Vehicles is getting it right with its proposed regulations for the general deployment of self-driving robot cars. Ironically, the evidence comes directly from Google itself, which has said it is “gravely disappointed” by the draft rules.
