Cities in The Driver’s Seat: Automated Vehicles Today

NACTO Conference

Best Best & Krieger attorney Gregory Rodriguez will serve on the panel “Cities in The Driver’s Seat: Automated Vehicles Today” at the National Association of City Transportation Officials’ conference, “Designing Cities 2017: Chicago.” Automated vehicle technology has advanced rapidly, with numerous technology firms and automakers testing fleets of automated vehicles in cities across the nation. These vehicles bring great promise, and potential pitfalls, for cities – not just in the future, but now, as new technologies are tested on the public right of way. State and local governments must have the authority to regulate their own streets, to ensure that innovation is compatible with safe operations and city goals. In this session, hear from cities that have automated vehicle testing on their streets, and the policy, legislative and legal frameworks that can guide safe use now and in the future.
