              The US House of Representatives has adopted a "Self Drive Act", which seeks to relax the general safety regulations for high-automated vehicles. The federal states remain largely outside.
            
            
            
                    
            In the US, a lot more self-propelled cars will soon be mixed with normal traffic. The US House of Representatives has, in rare agreement with the votes of the Republicans and the Democrats, adopted the draft "Self Drive Act". According to the initiative, individual federal states are no longer allowed to define their own rules for the design, construction and performance of highly automated vehicles. The deputies want to prevent a patch carpet from prescribing and bring autonomous cars to the road more quickly.
100,000 test vehicles
Companies that work on self-propelled cars can, according to the project, be freed from existing requirements for roadworthy vehicles. Over the course of the first year, they are expected to use up to 25,000 more or less autonomous motor vehicles on public transport routes. Within three years, this number will rise to 100,000. While the general safety regulations are to be partially overridden for such test runs, the design contains comparatively strict requirements for cybersecurity and data protection.
In order to make the technology applicable to autonomous driving in the broad range and thus to make the transport network "safer and more efficient", guidelines for continuous testing and development are necessary, the Republican majority leader in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, justified the move. Only in this way could the US remain "the most innovative country in the world". For this reason, the Bundestag already adopted a draft law in March, which aims to create more legal certainty in automated driving.
"Wild West scenario" on the streets
John Simpson of Consumer Watchdog, on the other hand, contended that the draft excludes car manufacturers and technology groups from the standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and confronts consumers with a wild-west scenario. If the policy leaves relevant solutions to the market, the parties put the cheapest option. Individual analysts and researchers, on the other hand, suggested a reasonable and flexible approach that allowed developers enough room but did not remove NHTSA control. The Self Drive Act or a similar law draft must still pass the Senate before the rules could enter into force in this way or in revised form.
