Lawmakers warn of automation’s potential to replace drivers

“A U.S. Congressional committee responsible for funding federal transportation programs is calling on regulators to develop a “national strategy” to address drivers who could be displaced by autonomous vehicles (AVs).” – According to article in freightwaves.com and its author John Gallagher

Gallagher also wrote – “In a report published on June 3 explaining priorities set out in the initial draft of the transportation funding bill for fiscal year 2020, the House Appropriations Committee registered concern that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and its subsidiary agencies were not adequately preparing for challenges that could result from automation, particularly the potential for putting drivers out of work.”
