Avi D. Kelin, Esq., Senior Associate and Autonomous Vehicle Law Practice Group Chair, recently penned an article entitled, "Autonomous Vehicles: State and Municipal Governments Need to Stay in the Same Lane" which was published by NJ Municipalities Magazine.
In the article, Mr. Kelin touches on the many obstacles and issues that New Jersey must overcome before putting the "wheels to the road" citing that, "Currently, the law in New Jersey still requires a human operator for vehicles, and there is no current framework for the licensing and testing of autonomous vehicles."
Mr. Kelin advises that "When we finally enact autonomous vehicle laws in New Jersey, we have to make sure we have thought through these and other variables and ensure that our municipalities, counties, and statewide governments are all in alignment for a common set of the rules of the road. After all, we want to avoid the potential for bumpy roads ahead."
