Last year, in 2016 the federal government officially recognized Google's software, not the passenger, as the "driver" in its self-driving cars. This has greased the wheels for the driverless car industry, but insurance companies are preparing for a nightmare of claims and  lawsuits.  One question:  “Who is charged if there is a fatal accident and there is an occupant (or assistant driver) in the driverless car? What happens if there is a lawsuit? Who pays the fine or serves time if the driverless car is found guilty?”  Steve and Sinclair have the details.
