Parts of Canada ban self-driving cars

In the Canadian province of British Columbia, level 3 self-driving cars have been so banned that the cars are not even allowed to drive on the roads without the system turned on.

Self-driving cars are divided into five levels, with 1 being the lowest and 5 the most advanced.

Now the Canadian province of British Columbia draws the line at level two. Anything above that is simply prohibited from being used on the roads.

Even if the cars have the systems, but the drivers fail to activate them, it will be a no thank you from the provincial government. The cars are prohibited, and they were on April 5.

This is what the government in the partially self-governing province writes on its website.

– These new rules will make it safer on the roads, says the province's Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Rob Fleming.

With the ban, a penalty is also already in place. Although it varies quite a lot. Drivers who are caught in self-driving cars risk anything from 2,000 Canadian dollars, equivalent to 10,000 Danish kroner, to six months in prison.

On the other hand, you can say that there aren't very many cars on the road that can even drive at level 3, but they are there. The cars that is.

For example, Mercedes calls it Drive Pilot in the electric car EQS and in the latest version of the S-Class. It is uncertain whether the new rule applies to all drivers on British Columbia roads, or whether it is only a set of rules that apply to drivers with zip codes within the province.

And if we're just going to stick with Mercedes, the car brand is ready to go to great lengths to spread the technology in self-driving cars.

In fact, the American importer is ready to take the blame for all the accidents these kinds of cars do. Read more about it here .
