The Automated Vehicle vlog series was created to showcase and explain the findings of the Law Commissions' joint report. Our motor practice discuss the report's recommendations in more detail, breaking the proposals into several key themes.

Automated vehicles are coming and they will change the future of transport. Developments in this field offer the possibility of reducing congestion, accidents and injuries, as well as cutting emissions and noise pollution. But there are also fundamental questions about responsibility.

Our vlog series explores the Law Commissions' recommendations for legal frameworks to manage their development and use. This episode focuses on the future of road traffic offences and covers aspects of criminal liability in the context of automated vehicles, including offences which might apply to:

• the user-in-charge and;

• the Authorised Self Driving Entity (ASDE)
