Are Autonomous Vehicles on a Regulatory Collision Course?

On May 16 in Washington, D.C., hear from and talk with federal, state and local regulators on how we can head off a crash.

You can be part of the conversation. The Alliance for Transportation Innovation ( will host leaders from NHTSA, California DMV, Uber, General Motors, Volkswagen and many others, to discuss national policy that will regulate Autonomous Vehicles.

Nobody wants 50 sets of competing standards. The May 16 forum in Washington, D.C. will examine the role of state and local governments, and how they can work with federal agencies to advance Autonomous Vehicles

This critical conversation will tackle the AV community’s concerns about the increasingly unworkable labyrinth of inconsistent laws, regulations and policies at all levels of government.
