From the Competitive Enterprise Institute:

Today, the California Department of Motor Vehicles held a hearing on its proposed rules that would govern automated vehicle testing and public deployment in the state. In advance of the hearing, the Competitive Enterprise Institute submitted a comment letter criticizing the DMV’s proposal to codify a key element of the nonbinding federal guidance document, Federal Automated Vehicles Policy, something the federal guidance explicitly cautions states against doing. CEI also joined a coalition comment letter with the R Street Institute, TechFreedom, and International Center for Law & Economics touching on several other problems with the DMV’s proposed regulations—from permitting to privacy. Our coalition previously submitted comments in October 2016 on the DMV’s then-draft regulations.
