CEI Responds to NHTSA Self-Driving Car Guidance Updates

Marc Scribner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute responded today to the NHTSA announcement of updated guidance for self-driving cars:

“The Department of Transportation’s update of the Federal Automated Vehicles Policy clarifies what the federal and state roles should be in regulating self-driving cars. Developers will also appreciate the elimination of unclear and unnecessary requests for information related to safety assurance. We hope the Department continues to recognize the value of allowing the private sector to lead the development of this important technology under a light-touch regulatory framework, which is the best way to ensure this life-saving and life-enhancing technology reaches consumers as quickly as possible.”​​
