s released a report last year to examine how technology could affect the future of American cities. NLC looked at America’s 50 most populated cities, plus the largest cities in each state. The City of the Future: Technology & Mobility report explored how 68 cities across the United States are planning for the arrival of driverless cars.
 It turns out we’re not really planning for self driving cars at all. Most cities seem not to be forecasting driverless cars in their future. The report found that only 6 percent of cities consider driverless technology in their long-term transportation plans. Half of the cities are planning for new highway construction.
