GM Criticized for NHTSA Safety Standard Request

Order Reprints

May 24, 2019—General Motors wants a fleet of autonomous vehicles on the road for use as a ride sharing fleet and first requested a two-year waiver on features from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in early 2018, reported CNET.

Yet, the AVs GM has in mind lack some legally required components like a steering wheel or dashboard warning lights.

GM's end goal is to deploy some 2,500 driverless cars by the end of 2019, which it's been working on through subsidiary Cruise Automation, for a commercial ride-sharing scheme.
