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 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.[1] On that basis and in that spirit, we believe that further revisions are necessary.
