Driverless Cars: Technology & Regulation

The progression of driverless car technology towards widespread availability has raised a number of important questions. How should policymakers balance safety and innovation when regulating the technology? How should the technology’s potentially life-changing impact on the disabled community be taken into account? Do we need national standards, or should states be left to regulate the technology as they see fit? In this Fourth Branch video, experts and advocates discuss these questions and more.

As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.
