If the Department of Transportation grants GM's latest Safety Petition, the company will be allowed to deploy its no-steering-wheel, and pedal-less autonomous vehicle next year. Under state law, companies with a license to test autonomous vehicles are required to disclose all accidents, even when they are not at fault. They can also press special buttons that bring the vehicle to a halt and allow them to exit in case of an emergency. "We collect and analyze petabytes of data to ensure our vehicles operate safely and reliably".
