Self-driving (autonomous) vehicles are no longer an abstract futuristic idea. While the expectation is that autonomous vehicles will lead to a decrease in traffic-related injuries there are still a lot of unknowns. One prominent question for those who work with and care for children is how their unique needs are being met – as passengers, pedestrians and micro-mobility1 users. Join this webinar to hear from two of the nation’s leading experts on this evolving and timely topic. Kristy Brinker Brouwer, Kettering University and Joe Colella, Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, will share their knowledge and answer your questions about children and autonomous vehicles. The webinar will be moderated by Morag MacKay of Safe Kids Worldwide, and an active member of the Children’s Safety Alliance Now (CSN-A).
