150 150 Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety

On June 15, 2022, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates), joined by U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Edward Markey (D-MA), U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), the League of American Bicyclists and former Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Joan Claybrook discussed the release of data on crashes involving vehicles equipped with partial or fully automated driving technology.

NHTSA released the data almost one year after issuing a Standing General Order requiring auto and equipment manufacturers and operators of vehicles equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that are rated as Level 2 per the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and vehicles with automated driving system capability (SAE Levels 3 – 5) to report crashes.
