In California, it’s illegal to talk on a cell phone handset while driving your car. The reasoning is pretty simple: with one hand glued to your smartphone, not only are you distracted chatting about what happened on last night’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” but you also only have one hand to hold the wheel.
But what if you were sitting in your car and didn’t actually have to drive? What if all you had to pay attention to was getting to the next level in Angry Birds?
The California state legislature just moved that dream a little closer to reality by approving a bill paving the way for driverless cars to be allowed on Golden State freeways.
