Japan passed a new law that allows drivers of autonomous cars in certain situations to use their smartphones, read a book, eat their lunch & use a laptop too. Such freedom of action is, however, restricted to certain situations like a traffic jam. The important condition is that the vehicle should be able to drive itself in the situation, while the driver should be able to switch to manual immediately as the demand springs up.
