AV Industry Statement on Delaware SB 258 to Ban AV Trucks

Washington, D.C. - The Autonomous Vehicle Industry Association issued the following statement from chief executive officer Jeff Farrah on Delaware SB 258, a bill to ban autonomous trucks in the state:

“The AV industry opposes SB 258 for preemptively and prematurely banning AV trucks in Delaware. AV trucks will thrive alongside truck drivers to meet growing freight demands and supply chain challenges currently hurting Delaware’s manufacturers, farmers, and small businesses. Every state that has considered similar legislation has rejected this harmful proposal. We urge Delaware’s lawmakers to reject this legislation.”
