Deadline downshifted for connected cars comments

Share This Page

It’s wise to maintain a reasonable speed: 1) when you’re behind the wheel; or 2) when you’re preparing your public comments for the June 28, 2017, workshop on connected cars hosted by the FTC and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That’s why we’re extending the deadline for your feedback to Monday, May 1st.

The event will focus on consumer privacy and security issues posed by automated and connected vehicles. Last month, the FTC and NHTSA put out a list of nine questions to help frame the discussion. We’ve received some comments, but stakeholders asked for more time. So now you have until May 1st to respond. (Save a step by filing online.) Once we’ve received your comments and had a quick chance to kick the tires, we’ll post the agenda and a list of speakers.

The workshop – it’s free and open to the public – will be held at the FTC’s Constitution Center conference facility, 400 7th St., S.W., in Washington, DC. We’ll also webcast it live.



I would like to voice my opinion to stop connected cars or driverless cars. They are a job-killer for people...truck drivers, cab drivers, delivery truck drivers (UPS, Fedex, etc.)
