On Friday the Senate passed Joint Memorial 3, which would form a committee to study any changes the state would need to make in order to allow for the sale and operation of self-driving cars, while also ensuring their safety on the roads.

The joint memorial's sponsor, Republic State Sen. Jim White, said he believes autonomous cars will make New Mexico's streets safer, citing data that states 94 percent of crashes are caused by human error.
