Megan Morrone, Jason Howell, and Jason Hiner talk to Wayne Cunningham, senior editor at CNET's Roadshowabout how late yesterday the National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) responded to Chris Urmson, the head of Google's self-driving car project with a public letter on their website that said, among other things, that the computer in Google's robot car could be considered "a driver."
