Driverless cars immune from traffic tickets in California under current laws
Under current California laws, driverless cars are not immune from traffic tickets. California vehicle code applies to all operators of motor vehicles, including those that are Autonomous Vehicles (AV). Self-driving vehicles must comply with all the relevant traffic laws regarding speed limits, mandatory signaling, and sidewalk rules. Drivers of AVs can be ticketed for violations of traffic laws, as they are still legally responsible for the behavior of their vehicle.
