Support for Autonomous Vehicle Testing and Operation

Colorado state agencies must support the testing and operation of autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicle usage is authorized if the driving system complies with state and federal laws, or if approved by the Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado Department of Transportation. Autonomous vehicles are motor vehicles equipped with technology that allows vehicle automation to perform one or more driving functions without the direct control of the driver. (Reference Colorado Revised Statutes 42-1-102, 42-4-110, and 42-4-242)
