Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill will drive automated vehicles forward

Commenting on the release of the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill, 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 welcome the release of the new Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill because it demonstrates the Government’s clear commitment to moving forward when it comes to automated vehicles.  As an industry, we want to keep insurance as straightforward as possible, which is why insurers proposed the simple approach which the Government is now taking forward.”
