Self-Driving Cars Will Soon Be Legal in California
It should be no surprise that California is spearheading the movement to get self-driving cars street legal. After all, Google’s self-driving cars are being tested here and they’re frequently seen driving themselves on Silicon Valley streets.
Predictions are that self-driving vehicles (or some version of them) will not only be legal here in California, but legal nationally within three to five years. Does this mean that they will be common? Not by a long shot. Americans tend to hang onto their cars for quite a while. The average age of cars on the road is about 11 years.
Frivolous Lawsuit of the Month-Man (Without Attorney) Sues Makers of “Fallout 4” Video Game, Claiming “Addiction” to Game
A man is suing the gaming company Bethesda Softworks, makers of Fallout 4, claiming that he didn’t know the game would be “so addictive.”
“Apparently, after seeing an advertisement for the game, the man decided to download it and spend a few hours playing over the next few days,” reports Yahoo! News. Those days quickly turned into weeks, and after missing several days of work, he was fired from his job.
