Above is a picture of one of Google’s self-driving cars that is part of their fleet based in Nevada. Starting today, you might be seeing more of them on California roads thanks to a bill signing that took place in Mountain View with Google’s Sergey Brin and California’s Governor Jerry Brown.

With the bill signed, Google will be allowed to test their autonomous vehicles on whichever road they choose as long as there is someone in the driver’s seat ready to take control if the occasion calls for it. As of now, California’s DMV has been given a deadline of January 2015 to create rules and regulations regarding self-driving cars.

That’s some pretty exciting stuff.
