2018 House Bill 5749: Allow truck "platoons" on highways

Passed 26 to 12 in the Senate on December 11, 2018.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To exempt truck “platoon” operations from a traffic law requirement that trucks leave sufficient space between themselves and other trucks for other vehicles to pass. Platoon is defined as vehicles "traveling in a unified manner at electronically coordinated speeds." Under current law truck drivers must leave “sufficient space between the vehicle and another truck so that an overtaking vehicle may enter and occupy the space without danger.” The bill amends a 2016 law that would permit testing of “platoons” of (potentially) driverless trucks traveling together on highways, subject to detailed restrictions and conditions.
