IIHS Wants Driver-Assist Systems to Require a Driver’s Attention

The highway safety organization weighed in on the debate surrounding driver-assist tech, recommending that multiple systems remind drivers to remain engaged.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has issued three recommendations to ensure driver-assist and self-driving technology is safer.

The insurance-industry nonprofit said it’s a problem that the systems currently available don’t require drivers to have their hands on the steering wheel.

The recommendations follow increased scrutiny of the driver-assist tech on the market.
