New York starts accepting applications for autonomous vehicle testing

Soon enough, self-driving car companies will have the opportunity to see how their cars deal with sitting in the occasionally snowy bumper-to-bumper New York traffic.

Today, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state will begin accepting applications from companies interested in testing out their self-driving car vehicles on public roads.

“With this action, we are taking a careful yet balanced approach to incorporating autonomous vehicles on our roads to reduce dangerous driving habits, decrease the number of accidents and save lives on New York roadways,” said Gov. Cuomo in a statement.

New York joins California, Nevada and Arizona as the list of states where autonomous vehicles are allowed, in some capacity or another, to operate. The current testing period extends expires April 1, 2018 but can be extended, state budget permitting.
