AVIA Statement on California SB 915

The Autonomous Vehicle Industry Association issued the following statement from chief executive officer Jeff Farrah on SB 915:

“We are encouraged that SB 915 will not move forward. Fortunately the legislature understood the bill would have prevented safety and accessibility opportunities for millions of Californians.

“Cities are critical partners for AV companies, and the AV industry remains committed to fostering close and collaborative relationships with city officials and local law enforcement to ensure the technology’s benefits become a reality. At the same time, the AV industry will continue working with state lawmakers, the California DMV, California Highway Patrol, and other state regulators that are overseeing the safe deployment of AVs in the state.”
