Bill summary

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Amends GS 20-121.2 (Operation of a neighborhood occupantless vehicle on certain roadways; regulations; equipment requirements) as follows. Deletes the definition given for operator, making the statute subject to the definition applicable throughout GS Chapter 20, defining operator as a person in actual physical control of a vehicle which is in motion or which has the engine running (was defined in the statute as a person that enables or controls, or is responsible for enabling or controlling, with or without remote support, the operation of a neighborhood occupantless vehicle). Amends the exemption from State law or regulations requiring the installation, maintenance, or inspection of vehicle equipment that relates to or supports motor vehicle operation by a human driver, but is not necessary for operation by an automated driving system alone, so that it applies to a neighborhood occupantless vehicle (was, a fully autonomous vehicle) that is designed to be operated exclusively and at all times by an automated driving system.
