An Australian report has suggested that drivers affected by alcohol or drugs who use autonomous cars should be allowed relaxation in drink-drive laws.
Australia is generally considered to be a beautiful place. You can wear dresses to work in Australia that can be prepared in other countries but they have not been given the chance to wear them. So, you should not be surprised when the Australian National Transport Commission (NTC) has considered the owners of the self-driving car to be free from the country’s traditional driving-under-the-influence (DUI) laws.
A new report that is called Changing driving laws to support automated vehicles, NTC said that asking the owners of the autonomous vehicle to be sober before getting their vehicles unnecessary and has defeated the purpose of owning a self-driving car. According to NTC, “This situation is similar to a person instructing a taxi driver.”
It has been stated in the report that “One potential barrier to receiving full benefits of automated vehicles would be required residents of automated vehicles, who are not driving to comply with drink-driving laws” the report also stated “This will create a barrier to using a vehicle to drive safely home after drinking. ”
Although self-driving cars are ready to land on the streets, they will not simply take over – first, they will have to share tarmac with man-powered cars. For example, in Self-driving cars, the driver has to take control of the autonomous vehicle to avoid danger or in any dangerous situation. In such a case, according to the report note, the full limit of the DUI laws will still be applicable.
According to the report, “NTC believes that the introduction of automated vehicles will reduce human risk, which will cause to reduce human error on the road network.”
NTC is for making recommendations for the improvement of the 2018 transport and Commonwealth, State and Regional Transport Ministers Council meeting.
Various states and territories have enacted legislation to allow testing of driverless vehicle technology in recent years.
Last year South Australia passed the bill, while New South Wales passed the law to allow its tests in August.
