Washington -- Following today’s unanimous vote in favor of self-driving legislation out of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets issued the following statement from general counsel David Strickland:

“Self-driving vehicles offer an opportunity to significantly increase safety, improve transportation access for underserved communities, and transform how people, goods and services get from point A to B.

"The Coalition is grateful for the House Committee on Energy and Commerce's bipartisan leadership on the SELF DRIVE Act, and we look forward to working with members of the House and Senate to enact autonomous vehicle legislation that enhances safety, creates new mobility opportunities, and facilitates innovation."
