Ben Kelley, a leading authority on automotive safety, is a member or the Board of Director for the Public Health Advocacy Institute. Recently he published a scholarly article and op-ed discussing the safety implications of autonomous, i.e., “self-driving,” vehicles.
The article appeared in the Journal of Public Health Policy. JPHP is co-published by another of our board members, Anthony Robbins. The article examines key safety issues in long transformation to autonomous vehicles.
The op-ed appeared in the excellent investigative journalism site, FairWarning.org and, in a shorter form, in the Oregonian. It considers the impact of Trump Administration policies that may impact the safety of autonomous vehicles.

One of the Public Health Advocacy Institute’s founding board members, Ben Kelley, is a longtime auto safety expert with considerable experience with the issue from both in and outside of government. He has just published an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times (and Fair Warning) that benefits from his long memory of General Motors’ apologies and promises made to Congress over nearly a 50-year span. It puts GM’s failure to recall its defective ignition systems in a new and especially unflattering light. It also describes the difference in regulatory interest from Congress in 2014 as compared to 1966.
