The U.S. Department of Transportation announced the six cities where it will hold Driver Acceptance Clinics for drivers to test new technologies that will help the department learn more about how drivers respond to vehicle-to-vehicle communications that can help reduce traffic accidents and save lives.
The first clinic will be held in Brooklyn, MI, in August. The remaining clinics will be held in Minneapolis, Orlando, FL, Blacksburg, VA, Dallas, and San Francisco. Approximately 100 local drivers will be recruited for each clinic, which will take place in controlled locations.
