Missouri drivers protest autonomous trucks


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.
