A group of truckers protested at the Missouri statehouse Wednesday, asking lawmakers to keep autonomous trucks off the state’s highways. KRCG-TV reports Rep. Mike Moon, R-Ash Grove is said to be working on a bill that could stop them from driving in Missouri.
Meanwhile, Louisiana’s new laws on autonomous trucks became effective Aug. 1. It allows commercial vehicle travel without a human driver providing it’s registered, complies with federal and state laws, and is insured for at least $2 million.
Supporters for the ban against autonomous trucks gathered at the Capitol today to say their jobs and safety are on the line if these trucks are allowed in MO. @KRCG13 @LexieKRCG13 pic.twitter.com/esw1lMa5Fi— Gracee Mattiace (@graceekrcg13) August 20, 2019
