America's Workforce and the Self-Driving Future: Realizing Productivity Gains and Spurring Economic Growth

America's Workforce and the Self-Driving Future: Realizing Productivity Gains and Spurring Economic Growth

SAFE believes that AV-related labor displacement concerns—many of which have been expressed sensationally—must be addressed seriously rather than merely dismissed out of hand or repeated without verification. In response to these concerns, SAFE commissioned a panel of highly regarded transportation and labor economists to conduct a fact-based and rigorous assessment of the economic costs and benefits of AVs, including labor impacts.

Key findings

AV technology will require newly trained workers and will likely have an impact on employment within driver-based industries.

AVs promise dramatic increase in mobility to those unable to drive and vulnerable to inadequate public transportation.

Without changes towards an autonomous world, we are likely to continue to see high traffic-related fatality rates.
