This is my speech last week to the Metro Washington DC Council of Governments annual meeting, in Washington DC.
I set out to convince the gathered officials that among the various futures for transportation, and the factors that will influence that future, none are more pressing than the prospect of driverless vehicles. My key point was this is not some far off future issue, but as public officials and planners they will face key policy decisions in the next couple of years. We see this already in the California proposed decision, misguided in my opinion, to require driverless cars to have a steering wheel and a licensed driver at all times.
