Bicycle Friendly America Summer 2018 - 11

mated vehicle testing. Elaine Herzberg
was walking her bicycle as a pedestrian
across a road in Tempe, Arizona at night
when a vehicle operated by an Uber automated driving system struck and killed
her. While the National Transportation
Safety Board and National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration are both
investigating the crash, the described
circumstance of Ms. Herzberg's death
- being hit by a vehicle that did not attempt to stop or avoid hitting her - are
unacceptable and far from delivering on
the promises of automated vehicle manufacturers.
What can be done now to ensure the automated
vehicles make bicyclists safer?
Last fall, the House of Representatives passed the "Safely Ensuring Lives
Future Deployment and Research In Vehicle Evolution Act" or the "SELF DRIVE
Act". Late last year, the Senate introduced
American Vision for Safer Transportation
through Advancement of Revolutionary
Technologies Act" or the "AV START Act".
Neither of these bills currently includes a
testing standard or process for creating a
testing standard that would allow consumers and regulators to understand the ability
of an automated vehicle or automated driving system to operate safely.
The League of American Bicyclists is
supporting Advocates for Highway and
Auto Safety in asking for a "vision test" to
be included in any federal legislation that
promotes automated vehicle deployment.
As currently proposed, this would amend
the AV START Act to provide for a rulemaking process to "require automated
driving systems, including SAE Level 2
automated driving systems, to meet a minimum vision performance standard. Such a
rule shall specify requirements that the automated driving systems are able to detect
and respond to all roadway users such as
other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, and
wheel chair users as well properly read and
interpret, roadway signage and highway
markings."
Please support our effort by taking action at http://p2a.co/Oy2UjKv or directly
contacting your representative and senators
to express your support.
