On February 1, we published our small summary of the latest recommendations on automated driving via a link at the end of
this update. We are currently working on publishing a series of short vlogs covering particular aspects of the new legal regime established by the Law Commission (including: pre-market regulation, type approval, access to vehicle and civil liability and criminal offences).

The Commission itself has just sent an email to stakeholders asking for their opinion on the outfit “a more general gathering in mid-March (virtual and/or face-to-face) to mark the end of the project… in collaboration with colleagues from the Center for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and wider DfT teams working in the political automated vehicle.”

Given that almost a year has passed since the closing of the Commission’s final consultation on automated vehicles, it seems to us that such an event – which will take place during the week of March 14 and will be probably in a hybrid format – is both timely and useful. We have already responded to this effect and if you are interested in doing the same in Thursday February 17 please click here to access the Law Commission’s online survey.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide on the subject. Specialist advice should be sought regarding your particular situation.
