On November 20, 2021, Ariel Wolf authored a letter to the editor of the New York Times proposing solutions for the shortage of truck drivers. Mr. Wolf serves as general counsel to the Self-Driving Coalition, a leading coalition of autonomous vehicle developers. The following is an excerpt from the letter:

America’s truck driver shortage existed long before the pandemic, and projections indicate that it will remain a long-term problem. Instead of training teenagers to drive 18-wheelers or forcing retailers to increase their prices, it’s time to seriously consider how autonomous trucks can close links in the supply chain.
