WASHINGTON – The following statement should be attributed to Catherine McCullough, executive director of the Intelligent Car Coalition:

“Senator Rockefeller’s summit on technological solutions to distracted driving brings an important issue to the forefront and highlights just how intertwined the tech and transportation sectors have become in recent years. As evidenced in today’s discussion, intelligent vehicle technologies have great potential to help make America’s cars and roads a safer place. Because Congress has fostered a framework that nurtures innovation, encourages investment and promotes competition in tech, companies are now competing to develop solutions to combat distracted driving. To continue to bring technological solutions to the marketplace as fast as possible, all stakeholders should collaborate on the important policy questions surrounding intelligent vehicle technologies.”
