Issues & Ideas Forum - "Driverless Cars: The Regulatory and Infrastructure Challenge" (May 18, 2017)

You may not have seen them on the highway yet, but autonomous vehicles are here. The potential benefits of this and related technologies are immense. But they also present new and unique regulatory and infrastructure challenges for state and local governments. Brent Skorup of the Mercatus Center has written extensively on these issues and will lay out the principles and practices policymakers should pursue when determining how to regulate these new technologies.

Brent Skorup is a research fellow in the Technology Policy Program at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He has authored pieces for law reviews, National Affairs, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, Wired, Reuters, Reason, National Review, and elsewhere. His research and commentary has appeared in news outlets like C-SPAN, NPR, CBS, The Washington Post, Vox, Bloomberg, and Buzzfeed.
