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.

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.
