SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California regulators are embracing a General Motors recommendation that would help makers of self-driving cars avoid paying for accidents and other trouble, raising concerns that the proposal will put an unfair burden on vehicle owners.If adopted, the regulations drafted by the California Department of Motor Vehicles would protect these carmakers from lawsuits in cases where vehicles haven't been maintained according to manufacturer specifications.That could open a loophole for automakers to skirt responsibility for accidents, injuries and deaths caused by defective autonomous vehicles, said Armand Feliciano, vice president for the Association of California Insurance Companies.

And then there is the tax-payer liability — yeah, we’re the ones that pay after the worst floods strike. Your insurance company is actually taking these Acts of God to the bank, leaving the government and its subsidizers (us) to bear the burden.“For insurance companies: the bigger the disaster, the more they stand to profit,” Oliver said last night on HBO. “And that is a business model not usually seen outside of Nicolas Cage’s career.
