Car makers ask US to slow down on allowing self-driving cars | Ars Technica


curated by | April 11, 2016

“The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in January that within six months it intended to ‘develop guidance on the safe deployment and operation of autonomous vehicles.’ The agency is working with officials in states and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators to develop a ‘model state policy’ that would eventually lead to a consistent policy for the whole country. With that effort in progress, the NHTSA held a public hearing Friday to get different viewpoints. Paul Scullion, safety manager at the Association of Global Automakers, warned that issuing guidance instead of writing regulations could allow dangerous cars on the road. ‘While this process is often time-consuming, these procedural safeguards are in place for valid reasons,’ Scullion said, according to the Associated Press.”
