Autonomous Vehicle Implementation Predictions from Victoria Transport Policy Institute.

This report explores autonomous vehicle benefits and costs, and impacts on transportation planning issues. It investigates how quickly self-driving vehicles are likely to be developed and deployed based on experience with previous vehicle technologies, their benefits and costs, and how they are likely to affect travel demands and planning decisions such as optimal road, parking and public transit supply. This analysis indicates that some benefits, such as more
independent mobility for affluent non-drivers, may begin in the 2020s or 2030s, but most impacts, including reduced traffic and parking congestion (and therefore infrastructure savings), independent mobility for low-income people (and therefore reduced need for public transit), increased safety, energy
conservation and pollution reductions, will only be significant when autonomous vehicles become common and affordable, probably in the 2040s to 2050s, and some benefits may require prohibiting human-driven vehicles on certain roadways, which could take even longer.

Does anyone in the community have a grasp on the percent of truck driver training completers obtaining a CDL in your state?

We're looking into this in Illinois and data is scarce. Is anyone aware of national or state level data? Thanks!
