A bill has passed in Nevada that makes it legal for Google’s fleet of driverless cars to take to the state’s roads.

The hope is that in the future, these automated cars could avoid the crashes currently caused by distracted driving. Several companies are already hard at work creating the technology necessary to make it happen.

Obviously this is still a ways off, but someday you may honk at an inconsiderate driver and hear, “I didn’t do it! I just have a rude car!”

Check out the video to see what happened when Mashable tested one of Google’s self-driving cars at the TED Conference.
