Safety Groups Urge Congress to Regulate "Autonomous Vehicles"

A coalition of consumer safety groups wrote to senators asking them to delay passing the AV START Act (S. 1885) until the National Transportation Safety Board finished its investigation of two recent crashes involving autonomous vehicles. The groups said: "we are very concerned that provisions in the bill put others sharing the road with AVs at unnecessary and unacceptable risk." EPIC has called for national safety standards for connected cars in comments to NHTSA. In a recent amicus brief to the Supreme Court, EPIC also underscored the privacy risks of rental cars, which collect vast troves of personal data.
