Regulatory Comments

Comments of ICLE et al., California Department of Motor Vehicles Draft Regulations for Deployment of Autonomous Vehicles for Public Operation, California DMV


“On behalf of the R Street Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, TechFreedom, and the International Center for Law & Economics, we respectfully submit these comments in response to the California Department of Motor Vehicles’ proposed Driverless Testing and Deployment Regulations released on March 10, 2017. We believe the proposed regulations better serve the people of California—not only in terms of safety, but in terms of consumer welfare more generally. We are particularly cognizant of the DMV’s demonstrable commitment to an iterative approach to this rulemaking. On that basis and in that spirit, we believe that further revisions are necessary.”
