Join NACTO along with Karina Ricks and Erin Clark from CityFi for a members-only briefing to discuss recent requests from Ford and General Motors for exemptions from Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards that would allow them to deploy several thousand self-driving vehicles without human controls like steering wheels and brake pedals.
NACTO has submitted comments to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opposing the automakers’ exemption requests, an effort guided by city comments from a number of NACTO members and was supported by CityFi. This briefing will include an overview of the automakers’ requests, a summary of NACTO’s submitted comments, and a broader discussion about the potential impact of these requested exemptions on city streets.
*This event is only open to staff in NACTO member and partner agencies. Registration details for members will be shared through our policy listserv. Please register in advance if you plan to attend.
