In comments to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, EPIC has backed strong privacy and safety standards. Responding to the "Federal Automated Vehicles Policy," EPIC said self-regulation would not be enough to protect drivers in the United States. EPIC urged the safety agency to mandate the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, establish new oversight authority, and protect state privacy rules for autonomous vehicles. EPIC is on the front lines of vehicle privacy as well as efforts to regulate the "Internet of Things." EPIC also defends the right of states to develop strong privacy laws.
