Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn and his agency are looking to the future of driving in Illinois and a big part of that future involves vehicles without drivers.

Blankenhorn says driverless vehicles like the ones operated by Google in recent years aren't just an experiment, it's a movement that is gaining traction and he wants Illinois to be ahead of the curve.

Blankenhorn says some freight companies are talking with his agency about future use of autonomous vehicles in the state.
