- ATSSA Comments on the NHTSA Federal Automated Vehicles Policy
In September NHTSA released their Federal Automated Vehicles Policy to the public. NHTSA’s statutory authority is limited to motor vehicles, however, it is important that infrastructure-related objects that interact with the vehicles, such as signage, pavement marking, bicycle and pedestrian safety features, etc., are considered in both NHTSA and FHWA rulemaking regarding Highly Automated Vehicles. While we await FHWA’s proposals for an infrastructure deployment policy, we believe that both sides of automation (auto and infrastructure) must be considered and coordinated when creating these guidelines. ATSSA has just submitted our comments to this policy on behalf of the roadway safety community. These comments are important to potential future regulatory and legislative actions by the federal government.
