Message from Secretary of Transportation Anthony R. Foxx
As the digital era increasingly reaches deeper into transportation, our task at the U.S. Department of Transportation is not only to keep pace, but to ensure public safety while establishing a strong foundation such that the rules of the road can be known, understood, and responded to by industry and the public.
As the Department charged with protecting the traveling public, we intend to establish a foundation and a framework upon which future governmental action will occur.
In developing this Policy, we have consulted with industry leaders, experts in the field, state governments, the traveling public, and safety advocates, among others.
Going forward, we will conduct significant public outreach to inform our next update to this Policy. We very much look forward to the dialogues that will emerge in the coming weeks and months and thank you in advance for helping us.
