Back to News
Partners for Automated Vehicle Education Co-Chairs Kelly Nantel, vice president for communications and advocacy at the National Safety Council, and Brad Stertz, director of government affairs at Audi, issued the following statement on today’s National Transportation Safety Board meeting:
“PAVE was founded on the belief that achieving the potential benefits of automated vehicles requires providing accurate, factual information to the public. The loss of more than 37,000 lives on our roads every year is tragic, and automated vehicles offer the potential to prevent crashes and save lives. Today’s NTSB’s meeting underscores the importance of industry commitments that place safety assurance at the center of automated vehicle development. Those commitments will help strengthen public understanding and acceptance of this important technology.”
