Bipartisan Autonomous Vehicle Draft Bill Focuses on Hacking

The Detroit News reports a legislative draft “circulating around lobbying groups in Washington” would “allow automakers to sell self-driving vehicles without steering wheels or brake pedals.” The draft “contains language that would prohibit automakers from selling self-driving cars unless they develop, maintain, and execute ‘cybersecurity practices and processes to minimize cybersecurity risks to motor vehicle safety’ within 180 days of enactment of the proposed legislation.” Near the end of the article, the paper reports American Association for Justice Senior Director of Government Affairs Julia Duncan “said the final version of the legislation will have to have clear rules that allow self-driving car crash victims to sue manufacturers before her organization can fully support it. Said Duncan: ‘The decision rests with industry about whether they will agree to preserve and protect the rights consumers currently have to seek accountability under the law.’”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
