Dear NHTSA Stakeholder:
We write to alert you to a new NHTSA research report about a potential risk to an advanced vehicle safety technology called “vehicle-to-everything” communications (or “V2X,” for short). V2X is a wireless technology that allows vehicles to share critical safety information with other road users (including pedestrians and bicyclists) as well as with highway infrastructure. It promises to reduce crashes, protect first responders, alleviate traffic congestion, and assist State and local governments more efficiently maintain our highways, without requiring drivers to pay monthly subscription fees or give up their privacy.
