FMCSA Sends Automated Vehicle ANPRM to OMB

On Thursday the DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) sent an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) to the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for review. The ANPRM would address the “Safe Integration of Automated Driving Systems-Equipped Commercial Motor Vehicles”.

According to the abstract in the Fall 2018 Unified Agenda:

“FMCSA requests public comment about Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) that may need to be updated, modified, or eliminated to facilitate the safe introduction of automated driving systems (ADS) equipped commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) onto our Nation's roadways. FMCSA requests comment on specific regulatory requirements that are likely to be affected by an increased integration of ADS-equipped CMVs. However, the Agency is not seeking comments on its financial responsibility requirements because they are not directly related to CMV technologies and because future insurance requirements will depend in part on the evolution of State tort law with respect to liability for the operation of ADS-equipped vehicles.”
