Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill is the way ahead says the ABI

Ben HowarthCommenting on the publication of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill today, Ben Howarth, Senior Adviser for Motor and Liability at the Association of British Insurers, said:

“Insurers are helping the UK become a global leader in autonomous vehicles. These vehicles have the potential to dramatically improve road safety and it’s great to see the Government’s on-going commitment to taking forward the legislation needed to get them onto our roads. The planned approach to insuring autonomous vehicles should keep the process as straightforward as possible for consumers, and is based on proposals made by the industry.”
