Date:
April 25-27
Location:Atlanta, Ritz-Carlton

The following is an article that appeared in the May 1991 issue of Automotive Fleet.

Atlanta was the host city for the 1991 gathering of the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA) Spring Meeting & Conference.

AFLA inducted Jay Campbell-McFeeters of LMV Leasing as its new president, Mike Flanagan of Units States Fleet Leasing as executive vice president, and Milo Matick of Al Piemonte Ford as vice president.

AFLA's 23rd Annual Meeting and Conference, held at the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta from April 25-27, 1991 was the best-ever attended gathering of the association with more than 250 registered attendees, and centered around the theme of qualifying vendors, keeping control mechanisms running smoothly, and verifying the services received.

At the keynote address Friday, April 26, Michael Richardson, president and CEO of Angle American Auto Auctions, expanded on that theme, saying that every company has its own philosophy on what it considers services to be, and Anglo American's service philosophy is that "There is no substitute for quality, innovation creates service, you are only as good as the people who for you, and nothing will work without communication and cooperation.

Human Nature Prone to Take Advantage of Docile Autonomous Vehicles

By Mike Antich
The co-existence between autonomous and human-controlled vehicles (along with others who use public roads) will bring new issues into play, primarily because self-driving vehicles will be built to be inherently law-abiding and risk averse. As we approach this new era, the question is how seamlessly will autonomous and human-controlled vehicles co-exist? One thing is certain, as we trail blaze new ground, so too will we trail blaze new problems.
