Statement on Petition to FCC to Reconsider Decision on Safety Spectrum

The Alliance for Automotive Innovation (Auto Innovators) today urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reconsider its November 2020 changes to the 5.9 GHz Safety Spectrum Band. In its Petition for Reconsideration, Auto Innovators underscores a variety of concerns, including from various federal agencies and Congress. These concerns, in addition to the increasingly rapid pace of automotive innovation, make reconsideration appropriate.

“The FCC’s decision to reallocate most of the Safety Spectrum Band undeniably impacts road safety and the future of automotive innovation in the United States. We remain committed to deploying V2X technology. Through this Petition, Auto Innovators urges the FCC to reconsider its decision so that the safety and societal benefits of this technology can be maximized.”
