The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers joined with members of the Coalition for Future Mobility, a diverse group of stakeholders advocating for national leadership on autonomous vehicle policy, in a letter to Congressional leadership to support continued bipartisan efforts to establish a federal framework for the safe testing and deployment of autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies.
Excerpt from the letter:
“While safety is a critical component in the drive for the development of AVs, these vehicles can also provide life-changing opportunities for those who are not adequately served by current mobility options, such as seniors, persons with disabilities, and those who require more affordable transportation. Further, the benefits of these vehicles extend to other roadway users. Large-scale AV implementation could also mean less congestion and greater efficiency on our roads.”
