Gear Up for Driverless Cars: How Local Governments and Transportation Agencies Can Prepare Now

Free BB&K Webinar

This webinar was held on Tuesday, June 14. You can access a recording of the webinar below. For questions regarding the topic please contact the attorneys listed to the side of this page.

The excitement for autonomous vehicles is real and deserving. However, existing laws and regulations (from vehicles codes to federal safety regulations) do not exactly accommodate this technology… yet. Community planning, transportation networks, infrastructure, economic development initiatives, public safety and revenue will all be dramatically impacted.

During this BB&K-sponsored free webinar, speakers discuss the promise and challenges presented by autonomous vehicles, and what steps must be taken now at the local and regional level to take advantage of the opportunities presented by AVs — and to protect against the potential legal, economic and social issues raised by its deployment. Speakers will also provide background on the roll-out of this technology and regulatory insight on what is occurring at the federal, state and local level, including how agencies can ensure their concerns and needs are included in any future rulemakings and Congressional legislation.
