U.S. DOT Seeks Comment on Automated Driving Technologies

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) is seeking public comment on its efforts to reduce regulatory barriers to the introduction of vehicles using advanced automated driving systems and technologies.

In an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) published last month by the DoT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the DoT is seeking comment on questions related to several key regulatory areas. Specifically, the ANPRM requests input on topics such as requirements of human drivers, CDL endorsements, hours of service rules, medical qualifications, distracted driving, inspection, repair and maintenance, and cybersecurity.

Comments on the DoT’s ANPRM are due by not later than July 29th and can be made through the Regulations.gov portal.
