The damaging provision would preempt state and local authority to manage its public highway rights-of-way because it exempts the private IVHS

Intelligent Vehicle/Highway Systems -- An IVHS
Program was established with about $660 million over six years.
But now the same electronic advances that are behind IVHS
can make it possible to charge tolls without forcing cars to slow down.
Proponents of IVHS
- chiefly automotive and electronics industries and transport research institutions - have convinced many policymakers that smart cars and highways can solve an array of transport problems.
About a year ago, various parties interested in IVHS
America to act as a national advisory council.
As a result of the selection, Kapsch TrafficCom IVHS
will continue to provide transponders, readers, ancillary equipment and services to support the operations of members of the E-ZPass Group, who collectively operate the largest interoperable toll collection system in the world with more than 21 million issued transponders and over 3,000 equipped lanes.

has been selected by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to execute and deliver an integrated Incident Detection System (IDS) for the Washburn Tunnel in Houston, Texas.
In the early 1990s, when the federal officials and highway administrators first conceived of ITS (formerly IVHS
or Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems), they probably mused about a communications system that would allow completely hands-free driving.
