NCHRP Web-Only Document 253, Vol. 5: Developing the Autonomous Vehicle Action Plan 64 C/ADS-Equipped Vehicle Action Plan 7.1 Overview The C/ADS-equipped Vehicle Action Plan (AVAP) was intended to provide guidance and resources to state DMVs and DOTs to assist with the legal changes that will result from the rollout of C/ADS- equipped vehicles. The use of this resource is intended to provide states the means by which their legal and regulatory modification decisions may be validated and to provide states with opportunities to identify migration strategies to minimize any negative impacts before implementing changes to current state MVCs. Additionally, the AVAP should help states provide guidance to law enforcement organizations responsible for enforcing new codes. Within this action plan, the following questions were addressed: 1. What applicable existing laws and regulations may need reconsideration as C/ADSs become more widely used? 2. How and when will these codes need to be revised? 3. What are the barriers to implementing the resultant new rules for the road and what are the strategies for overcoming these barriers? 7.2 Final Guidance Document The AVAP guidance document is organized as follows: â¢ Chapter 1: Provides background and overview information â¢ Chapter 2: Presents a brief overview of the connected and Automated Driving System (C/ADS) legal and regulatory landscape as well as an overview of potential legal and regulatory modifications and/or clarifications that will be required as a result of the deployment of C/ADSs â¢ Chapter 3: Presents a prioritized list of potential legal and regulatory modifications and/or clarifications according to time period (short-, mid-, and long-term) and notes whether or not harmonization is recommended â¢ Chapter 4: Discusses potential barriers to legal and regulatory modifications â¢ Chapter 5: Presents a guide for establishing a C/ADS task force â¢ Chapter 6: Provides a guide for engaging the legislature
