In October 2016, while Coloradans were sleeping, a self-driving semi‑trailer drove 51,744 cans of Budweiser beer from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs down Interstate 25.   With the rise of investment in and the use of autonomous vehicles, governments face new challenges to address this growing field.  This issue brief describes autonomous vehicles, discusses current federal and state policy regarding those vehicles, and notes future policy considerations.
