Leaders Seek To Speed Up Driverless Future

Posted on May 18, 2016

A group of business and former military leaders wants to limit states’ ability to regulate driverless cars, calling for sweeping federal legislation to avoid a patchwork of rules they believe could hinder adoption of the technologically advanced vehicles.

Executives including FedEx Corp. Chief Executive Fred Smith and retired U.S. generals associated with a Washington group that lobbies to reduce America’s oil dependence plan to meet with politicians in the nation’s capital on May 19 to discuss recommendations for speeding introduction of self-driving vehicles. Others expected to be present include John Krafcik, head of the self-driving car division at Google parent Alphabet Inc.
