On August 22, 2022, Automotive News published a letter to the editor by Cathy Chase, President of Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates): “San Francisco shows need for AV regulation”

Excerpt: “San Francisco offers an early glimpse into the likely treacherous course of AV technology in the absence of a thorough and deliberate process that addresses known dangers and unintended consequences posed by wide-scale deployment. Thorough data collection and transparency combined with standards that establish a baseline for safety are essential. Policymakers should heed the experience in San Francisco, and other known failures and crashes across the country, to comprehensively address AV safety through regulation and oversight.”
