    SMART VEHICLES ARE HERE: CAN GOVERNMENT KEEP PACE?

    SMART VEHICLES ARE HERE: CAN GOVERNMENT KEEP PACE?
    The pressures are building for safer and smarter vehicles on our roads, raising questions about the national, state and local policies that will emerge. Several states are already early adopters of legislation to enable the use of autonomous vehicles. But every law is different, no national policies exist and innovations are unfolding rapidly. With the evolution of connected vehicles, intelligent roadways and cloud-based technologies (first maps, soon much more), there will be a host of choices for consumers and governments.
