California Gov. Jerry Brown (L) signs State Senate Bill 1298 as California State Sen. Alex Padilla (C) and Google co-founder Sergey Brin (R) look on at the Google headquarters on September 25, 2012 in Mountain View, California. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed State Senate Bill 1298 that allows driverless cars to operate on public roads for testing purposes. The bill also calls for the Department of Motor Vehicles to adopt regulations that govern licensing, bonding, testing and operation of the driverless vehicles before January 2015.


Self-driving cars could be on California roads in just a few years, that's according to Google co founder, Sergey Brin.

Brin says it will provide relief to commuters and ease traffic congestion. His vision got a big boost last week when Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill that establishes regulations to test and the cars.
