THE ROAD AHEAD
The New Law Journal has just published my article on the government's proposals for reforming motor insurance and other regulatory aspects of motor transport to accommodate new automated vehicle technologies. See my earlier post GOVERNMENT CONSULTS ON DRIVERLESS CARS.
My New Law Journal article, The Road Ahead, whilst welcoming the initiative, points out that the proposals contain some inaccuracies that need to be addressed. Just as with the Department for Transport's flawed 2013 consultation on reforming the MIB Agreements, this paper fails to fully appreciate the importance of European law in this area and this leads its authors to fall into error.
Law firms with a significant RTA practice would be wise to study the government's proposals and to respond to this consultation. The consultation ends on 9 September.
