5G proponents are often also proponents of other “Smart” Technology including Autonomous Vehicles (AV), Internet of Things (IoT), utility “Smart” Meters, etc. Countless experts have validated that all “Smart” technology is problematic in a variety of ways. It is vulnerable to cybersecurity risks (hacking, etc.), fires, explosions, mechanical problems, and more (see 1, 2, 3, 4).
Reports continue to be published that Autonomous Vehicles (AV) are NOT safer than most human drivers (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). In fact, there have been multiple reports about Teslas crashing and/or catching fire. Owners have reported additional life-threatening situations as well (see 1, 2).
Nevertheless, legislation has been introduced to authorize more “Smart” technology on all American roads.

New House Bill Promotes Transportation Technologies
Legislation that aims to promote the adoption of new technologies throughout the country’s transportation networks recently was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Strengthening Methods to Advance Research and Technology, or SMART, Act, introduced by Rep. Troy Balderson (R-Ohio), would aim to advance innovation, efficiency and new safety programs across transportation corridors.
Specifically, the bill would authorize several programs at the U.S. Department of Transportation. The programs pertain to advanced technologies, connected vehicles, automated driving systems and digital construction management systems. Rural areas would be covered under the bill, according to background provided by the congressman’s office.
Ohioans are proud to be a national leader in smart mobility and advanced transportation research. I’m excited to keep working with local infrastructure leaders to continue state-of-the-art work to improve road safety and transit efficiency in Ohio.
