New consultation on regulation of self-driving cars

self driving

Release Date: 13/11/2018 

The Law Commission has launched a three-month consultation on the UK’s regulatory framework for the safe deployment of automated vehicles – focusing on safety assurance and legal liability. 

Part of the Future of Mobility Grand Challenge set out in the Government’s Industrial Strategy, the consultation is seeking input on the type of legal changes that may be required to ensure the country is ready for the introduction of driverless vehicles. It includes questions on how and if road rules should be adapted, who would be responsible for accidents or road traffic offences and how to ensure safety for passengers and the wider public. 

The consultation is part of a longer project that will run from March 2018 to March 2021 with future stages including consultations on the regulation of automated vehicles in public transport and Mobility as a Service. A copy of the consultation and a summary of the Law Commission project can be downloaded online.
