Federal Officials Move Forward with Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication Technology

On Monday February 3, federal officials from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced plans to move forward with requiring automobile manufacturers to equip vehicles with new technology for car-to-car communications. By installing the innovative technology on new cars and light trucks, safety officials estimate that up to 80% of traffic accidents – excluding those caused by impaired drivers and auto part defects – could be prevented.
