Maryland proposes I-95 as testing ground for driverless cars

Interstate 95 and other major arteries around the Baltimore region could become a testing ground for driverless cars starting in 2018 under a proposal Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration announced Wednesday. The state has applied for a U.S. Department of Transportation program that aims to work out the kinks in “autonomous vehicle” technology, speed its arrival on roadways across the country and help grow companies that are developing it. In addition to I-95, the state proposal would allow testing on U.S. 1, U.S. 40 and the Intercounty Connector, and at facilities such as the port of Baltimore and Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
