Experimental self‐​driving cars have successfully operated more than 700,000 miles on American highways. Such cars will be on the market by 2020 and will radically transform the 21st century. What should Washington policymakers know about the future of American mobility? Randal O’Toole will describe the implications of self‐​driving cars for urban transit and regional transportation planning. Marc Scribner will discuss the laws and regulations that should govern self‐​driving cars. Adam Thierer will review the privacy implications of self‐​driving cars. Please join us for a preview of the future of American transportation.

Featuring Randal O’Toole, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; Marc Scribner, Research Fellow, Competitive Enterprise Institute; and Adam Thierer, Senior Research Fellow, Mercatus Center; moderated by Matthew Feeney, Policy Analyst, Cato Institute.
