Following the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 receiving Royal Assent and passing into UK law AXA’s UK Technical Director David Williams commented:

“Today we accelerate into the future as the first ever piece of UK legislation for driverless cars becomes law. AXA, having fed into the Bill from the start, is positive this regulation will ensure autonomous vehicles are on the roads by the Government’s target of 2021."

“Autonomous vehicles can drastically change UK roads, making them safer by reducing accidents while providing increased mobility and independence for a range of people – including the ageing population or those who are unable to drive."

“While the first step has been taken today, we must now consider the connectivity aspect of the technology, its cyber security implications and how we create a data sharing agreement for the autonomous vehicle ecosystem.”
