Technological advancement into the fields of artificial intelligence and it’s intersectionality with vehicles has led to a rapid emergence in the development of autonomous vehicles. The law must be conscious in matching step with these developments as the public rollout of this technology starts to materialise. This paper attempts to take cognizance of the primary legal challenges that the Indian state faces when dealing with a new legal object such as self-driven vehicles. Which level of government holds jurisdiction over it? How does the state deal with the privacy violations? What if machine learning leads to a replication of the prevalent discriminatory structures that plague the country? Not only are these questions themselves relevant in the current reality, but there is an urgent need to find their answers and create laws in dealing with the issues that have emerged with this technological development so as to avoid letting these problems grow exponentially to a point where finding solutions becomes difficult, as this paper intends to show with instances from industries internationally. It demands Indian law to be proactive and act in wake of a technological renaissance, rather than react to it when it has already passed them by.
