A bicoastal conversation has been taking place this week around the future of self-driving vehicles and how to regulate this emerging technology. On the West Coast, I participated on a panel discussion at the Automated Vehicles Symposium in San Francisco. On the East Coast, Congress is working on developing policies to accelerate the deployment of self-driving technologies and promote safety.

Fourth of July weekend marks the beginning of summer driving season. While more drivers hit the road, safety remains a top priority for the Association and our members.  Self-driving vehicle technologies are getting a lot of attention these days for their promise to reduce highway fatalities.

When events occur in clusters, I sometimes wonder:  coincidence or conspiracy?

Wednesday morning, Fox and Friends invited me to join them for a segment on some of the best buys for American-made vehicles on the market, as peak summer driving season begins.  We brought seven vehicles, from sedans to sport utilities, all made in America, by Americans, working for international nameplates.

It is unfortunately all too often the case that in their rush to regulate some new issue, well-meaning politicians end up doing more harm than good. This is certainly the case with automated or self-driving vehicles.

This week, there has been a lot of talk about our country’s ‘infrastructure’.  Much of the conversation is about building and improving our roads, waterways and airports using traditional materials such as concrete, steel and asphalt. However, I want to go a step further and talk about the “smart” use of infrastructure. The reality is that technology – in the form of spectrum, sensors, and algorithms – will be the raw materials for a revolution to provide a safer, more efficient, and more sustainable way of life.
