Autonomous fleets – have your say.

17 March 2021

Source: Driving for Better Business.

The Law Commission is nearing the end of their third consultation paper on a regulatory framework for automated vehicles. While fully autonomous vehicles may be some way off, they raise some important questions around risk management, especially for fleet operators and we’ve recently discussed some of those implications with their team.

They would like as much input as possible to this discussion. There are a large number of questions in the overall consultation that need input – however you don’t need to answer all of them, and even an answer to just one or two would prove helpful.

We’ve put together an introduction below with an extract from chapter 6 of the Consultation Summary document along with 6 questions that are most relevant to fleet operators.

Please have a read through the following information and, if you would like to provide some useful input, you can submit answers to one or more questions here.

The deadline is officially 18th March however if you would like to contribute but require more time please contact Jessica Uguccioni at the Law Commission.
