What will laws on self-driving cars look like? Think black boxes and 'minimum attention'

'Black box' already exists AFAIK

My 2003 Dodge Ram pickup had one - when it was wrecked, insurance company, Chrysler, various investigators, etc, could tell me what speed, when the brakes were applied after the rear impact, then why the airbags didn't deploy upon the frontal impact (75' ravine/tree(s))... Oblique angle on impact didn't register on sensors, thus driver eating steering wheel and windshield... But I digress...

Anyway, the black box is already covered.
