Over the last several months, the League of American Bicyclists has been working with a diverse coalition of transportation groups to make sure that Automated Vehicle legislation puts safety first.
Now is a critical time for Congress to know that the current Automated Vehicle legislation:
- Must include a "vision test" so that Automated Vehicles can detect, identify, and safely respond to people biking and walking; and
- Must ensure that safety regulations occur as soon as possible, instead of perhaps a decade or more in the future as seen in some drafts.
Please join us in asking Congress to pass a strong Automated Vehicle bill that puts safety first and includes these necessary safety components.
