Description

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 the driving task. 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. Amends § 46.2-1077, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
