UK government announces three-year legal review of automated vehicles

  • March 7, 2018

The UK government has commissioned a detailed review of driving laws to “examine any legal obstacles to the widespread introduction of self-driving vehicles and highlight the need for regulatory reforms”.

The project will review and answer key questions, such as:

  • who is the ‘driver’ or responsible person, as appropriate;
  • how to allocate civil and criminal responsibility where there is some shared control in a human-machine interface;
  • the role of automated vehicles within public transport networks and emerging platforms for on-demand passenger transport, car sharing and new business models providing mobility as a service;
  • whether there is a need for new criminal offences to deal with novel types of conduct and interference;
  • what is the impact on other road users and how they can be protected from risk.
