With the advent of automated vehicle technologies, we are entering a period of transition and uncertainty that involves harmonizing the laws we have on the books with new issues raised by the technology. Until the 85th Texas Legislature (2017), Texas law was not tailored to recognize automated vehicles (AVs), not for testing or operation on Texas roads. However, during that session, Texas passed a law that began to address potential legal issues. The bill passed as Senate Bill 2205. Although this law addresses a number of issues that can help to create a legal foundation for the operation of automated vehicles in Texas, several other legal ambiguities remain. This brief identifies and discusses a number of those issues as they apply to automated vehicles.
