Automated Vehicles: The future of road traffic offences
UK & Europe
Insurance & Reinsurance
An introduction to our series on automated vehicles and the Law Commissions' report. We introduce the topics that will feature in more detail in future episodes.
In January 2022, the Law Commission of England & Wales and the Scottish Law Commission published the final report in their joint, three-year investigation into the measures necessary to reform all aspects of vehicle safety and general road traffic laws (including motor insurance) in order to enable the safe use of automated vehicles on UK roads.
Our Automated Vehicles vlog series explains the report's recommendations in more detail, breaking the proposals into several key themes. This initial vlog introduces the final report and provides a structure for the topics that are covered in additional episodes, all of which are available below.
