Straightforward insurance proposals for automated cars being taken forward

Commenting on the Department for Transport’s plans for insurance rules for self-driving cars, Ben Howarth, Senior Policy Adviser for motor and liability at the Association of British Insurers (ABI), said:

“The insurance industry is 100 per cent committed to supporting the development of automated vehicles, which have the potential to dramatically improve road safety and revolutionise our transport systems. We want to keep insurance as straightforward as possible, which is why insurers proposed the simple approach which the Government is now taking forward.”
