Connected and autonomous vehicles. (CAVs) are a paradigm-changing transport technology that has the potential to revolutionize road ecosystems, build environments and cities as a whole, by reshaping their very form. This is a transformation with critical space and culture dimensions that may be complicated and could be responsible for a plethora of unprecedented opportunities and challenges. Physical and digital infrastructure enhancement packages and reclassification of road networks will be necessary and should be proactively identified, designed, regulated, and delivered for CAVs to be effectively utilized going forward. Risks from handling mixed traffic situations to technology shortcomings and from lack of legislative frameworks and CAV-specific education to combating CAV deception are all points of reference for this chapter. Through a narrative literature review study, we offer suggestions for a new road classification framework that welcomes CAVs and then policy recommendations for improving CAV pro-people character.
