Issues in Action

-A A +A

Innovations in automotive technology are focusing on connections; both to other cars and the outside world. Connected cars could bring safety benefits, including lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warnings, and automatic braking. Connected cars can also enhance the driver experience with improved navigation systems and cars that can park -­ and eventually drive - themselves.

Global Automakers' members are committed to exploring ways to improve safety on our highways and believes connected cars have the potential to save thousands of lives each year.

WASHINGTON, DC, OCTOBER 4, 2017 – “Today's approval of the AV START Act by the Senate Commerce Committee is another step forward to helping reducing highway fatalities on our nation's roadways. We thank Chairman Thune, Senator Peters, Ranking Member Nelson, and the Committee for their leadership. We will continue to work with Congress on refining the legislation in order to have an effective AV bill reach the President's desk for his signature."
