NHTSA faces roadblocks with self-driving vehicle regulations

In early October, a bill was approved by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation that would speed up the manufacturing and use of self-driving vehicles. Under the bill, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration would be given 10 years to develop safety regulations for such vehicles. Drivers in Arizona and across the U.S. should know, however, that there are some barriers that the agency has to overcome before it can begin.

Angry driving behavior

Arizona motorists may be some of the almost 80 percent of those who exhibit substantial anger, hostility or road rage while behind the wheel. This is according to the results of a study published in 2016 by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Defensive driving and distracted driving in Arizona

Due to the recent increase in traffic fatalities, many safety organizations are adding instructions for dealing with distracted motorists. Distracted drivers may be focusing on their cell phone, changing the radio station or doing any of a number of things other than paying attention to the road. In response to this increased threat, some experts say drivers should practice defensive driving.
