ITE Statement on Connected and Automated Vehicles

ITE Merchandise is Back!

With the rapid development of Connected and Automated (CV/AV) Vehicles, and mindful of the
recent fatal crash involving a self-driving car in Arizona, ITE has advanced a position statement
on the continued development, testing, and deployment of CV/AV.

ITE has reactivated the ITE Lands' End
Storefront. Working with Lands' End as our
corporate supplier, members can now go
anytime to https://business.landsend.com/
store/ite to order clothing and other merchandise branded with the ITE logo. But wait,
there's more! Districts have also been invited
to place their own logos on the ITE Storefront so that members can order clothing
and merchandise with the District's logo as
well. At checkout, just select the logo(s) that
you want included on your merchandise.
If your District's logo isn't there, encourage
your leadership to send it to Colleen Agan at
cagan@ite.org.

ITE supports the advancement of technology in all areas of transportation and remains optimistic about the innovation and entrepreneurship that the private sector is bringing to the
industry. ITE believes these new technologies have the potential to revolutionize transportation and save thousands of lives. A strong government role remains critical to ensuring that
the deployment of CV/AV improves the quality of life for all citizens. Governments must provide the regulatory oversight to ensure that CV/AV testing is done in a transparent manner
and that public safety is not compromised. In addition, they can also play a key role in working
with the private sector to facilitate deployment and remove regulatory barriers to widespread
deployment of proven technologies. ITE feels that the private sector, working in concert with
the government, has the responsibility to verify that new technologies have been fully tested in
off-the-road environments before they are placed on public roads.
"As a community of transportation professionals whose members are active in the development,
deployment, and oversight of these new technologies, we feel it is our responsibility to speak
out about both the importance of these technologies and the responsibility of governments and
industry to protect public safety," said Michael P. Sanderson, ITE International President.
ITE has identified six key tenets that underpin its position. These tenets are meant to provide a
high-level framework for the development, testing, and deployment of CV/AV. ITE's full position
statement can be found here: https://bit.ly/2EAl2xz.

Plan to come to the Joint ITE International
and Midwestern/Great Lakes Districts Annual
Meeting and Exhibit in August decked
out in your new ITE clothing. Let everyone
know that you are proud to be part of our
growing community of transportation professionals. All merchandise questions should
be directed to Lands' End at 800-587-1541,
Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. Central.

Take the 2018 Traffic Signal Benchmarking Self Assessment
The 2018 Traffic Signal Benchmarking Self Assessment is now open at www.tsbenchmarking.
org. The self assessment will be the basis for the Traffic Signal State of the Practice Report that
will characterize the state of the infrastructure and the organizational practices that support
the management, operation, and maintenance of the signalized intersections. The data and
report that result from the survey and case studies will help to identify opportunities to improve
support for traffic signal systems. ITE is leading this project in collaboration with the National
Operations Center of Excellence with support from the Federal Highway Administration.
Your organization's response to the Traffic Signal Self-Assessment provides the data needed
to develop the 2018 Traffic Signal Benchmarking and State of the Practice Report. The report will
characterize the state of the nation's traffic signal infrastructure and will broadly assess the capability of organizations to address common transportation goals and objectives. This information
is integral to planning for and directing investments in research, guidance, tools, and training to
advance the state of traffic signal management, operations, and maintenance. Ultimately this
resource will support the efforts of professionals in the private and public sector to enhance
mobility, safety, efficiency, reliability, and the state of good repair of the nation's signalized intersections. Assessments should be completed by May 15 in order for data to be used in the report.
