Policy paper on automated vehicles

The policy paper, issued by the association of North American City Transportation Officials/NACTO, calls for using automated vehicles to build the cities we want, instead of adapting cities to automated vehicles.

NACTO's policy recommendations include:

  • Planning for fully automated vehicles, not half-measures
  • Rethinking our streets and expressways
  • Ensuring safe operation on city streets, including limiting automated vehicles to 25 MPH
  • Creating data-sharing requirements
  • Changing planning models to incorporate the expected disruptive impact of this technology
