ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - For some people their car is what the use to get from point A to point B.  For others their vehicle is a much more personal choice, it's often a reflection of their own personality.

So I was shocked to find out some states are passing legislation to allow for cars that operate on their own.

Google is behind the "driverless car" technology and in fact the company says driverless cars are being used.

They are legal in Nevada and California will be next.

Sensors detect cars around you and somehow the car knows where it is, sort of like a GPS.

I'll be honest, I bet the system would be safer than alot of the drivers I've seen out on the road.

So Missouri and Illinois get ready for the future.

Even if it takes the fun out of driving.

I think I'm going to start taking Metro.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
