SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Motor vehicles equipped with television and video. Provides that motor vehicles may be equipped with visual displays of moving images if the equipment is factory-installed and has an interlock device that disables the equipment when the motor vehicle operator is performing a "driving task," which is defined by the bill. Current law allows equipment with a visual display of a television broadcast or signal if the equipment's interlock disables when the motor vehicle is driven. The bill would allow the viewing of a visual display while the vehicle is being operated autonomously. The bill also provides that vehicles used by universities for vehicle technology research are not required to have government plates. This bill is identical to HB 454.
