Autonomous Vehicles Meet Human Drivers: Traffic Safety Issues for States

As autonomous vehicles (AVs) merge into our nation’s traffic, the most pressing safety challenge for states will be preparing human drivers. GHSA's first Spotlight on Highway Safety covering AVs, Autonomous Vehicles Meet Human Drivers: Traffic Safety Issues for States, examines the implications of new vehicle technologies for highway safety agencies and advocates.

It is widely acknowledged that fully autonomous vehicles, or cars and trucks that can drive themselves without a human at the controls, are coming soon.
