Autonomous Vehicles

This article discusses the impact of autonomous vehicles (AVs) on greenhouse gas emissions and considers policy implications in California. Regulatory mechanisms that can limit emissions from autonomous vehicles include supporting shared AV technology through incentives, adopting emission standards, and incorporating AV into public transit. A section on efficient land use discusses strategies like supporting tech-and-transit-oriented development and encouraging green spaces in areas previously used for parking.
