Self-Driving Cars are Coming – So What are Lawmakers Doing About Them?

In automotive labs around the country, engineers are developing and perfecting self-driving vehicles. And in statehouses around the country, lawmakers are preparing for the day that autonomous vehicles travel America’s roadways. In 2017, 33 states have introduced legislation on autonomous vehicles; over the past several years, 21 states have already passed laws covering everything from testing of such cars and trucks to authorizing their use on the road. What other state legislation is in the works? And where does self-driving legislation stand in Congress? In this free, one-hour webinar, we will help journalists understand the issues surrounding autonomous vehicles – including safety, technology and the impact on the economy.

Participants:

Steve Gehring, vice president for vehicle safety and connected automation, Association of Global Automakers

Jack Gillis, director of public affairs, Consumer Federation of America, and author of “The Car Book”
