Venable attorney Ariel Wolf presented “Autonomous Vehicle Policy and Regulations: A Discussion on the Current Landscape and Future of Avs” hosted by Urban Institute on September 22, 2022.
The mobility system in the United States is unsafe, inequitable, and environmentally destructive. Autonomous vehicles (AVs), self-driving cars, could help mitigate these problems—if AVs are implemented in a thoughtful, well-regulated manner. However, if they are deployed haphazardly with inadequate oversight and regulation, they could produce even worse inequities than those caused by the current mobility system. Multiple levels of government will play a role in making regulatory choices about AV rollout, with federal, state, and local governments each contributing to the construction of the AV ecosystem.
