Maryland Lawmakers Buckle Up to Regulate Self-driving Cars

The best thing the state of Maryland can do is pass a law that this does not happen, just wait for the litigation after the first person is killed not only against the car manufacturer but the state of Maryland for allowing them on the roads

The citizens of Maryland would be better served if they all walked to the talk of the Bay Bridge and jumped in. They are a disgrace.
