Quote from: Delegate West_Midlander of North Carolina
How should we go about regulating the development of this technology and/or what level(s) of SDVT does everyone think should be banned if any?

As per the current amendment "technology that makes a vehicle is capable of performing all driving functions under certain conditions or under all conditions." Which covers level 4 & 5. This means that Drivers get benefits of limited automation without the risks of having their jobs replaced by machines.

This isn't about an outright ban. SDVT is still legal for private citizens. This is about the long term protection of Transport industry jobs, which is a major sector of employment not only in the South but Atlasia wide.

How very neoliberal of y'all to not want to put some form of protection for the hark working drivers of the South. The governor said he was against neo-liberalism yet this chamber doesn't seem to want to actually take a stand to provide protection to the workers in the Transport Industry.

Would y'all be more amenable if a sunset clause was included into TIJ Pro?
By my understanding, this is a ban for use in business but citizens can use private vehicles utilizing SDVT of levels 1-3.

I think a sunset clause would get an aye vote from me on this bill. That way this Chamber will be forced to reevaluate the matter at a later time to keep the proposal standing. I will leave it up to the Deputy Speaker or to the suggestion of other delegates to propose an appropriate time period for this bill to last before reevaluation is needed.

EDIT:

I will support this bill without a sunset clause. I think SDVT will de-incentivize public transport leading to more cars on the road and as a result more CO2 emissions.

Given that there is no apparent will in the Chamber to amend this bill further (ie. for a sunset clause, as I will support this bill without one, now), I motion for a final vote if there are no objections.
