Support for Autonomous Vehicles

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is the lead agency responsible for coordination of autonomous vehicle (AV) program and policies. ODOT will establish a Task Force on AVs (Task Force) to develop recommendations for AV legislation to address licensing and registration, law enforcement and accident reporting, cybersecurity, and insurance and liability. The Task Force must submit a report to the Legislative Assembly on proposed recommendations by September 15, 2018. The Task Force will also submit a report on the potential long-term effect of AVs to the Legislative Assembly by September 15, 2019. (Reference House Bill 4063, 2018)
