2019 BVRLA response to the Law Commission Consultation on Automated Vehicles

2019 BVRLA response to the Law Commission Consultation on Automated Vehicles

The BVRLA welcomes the review into on how UK law should change to enable the safe use and operation of automated vehicles. BVRLA members are typically the legal owner of the vehicle and do not have day-to-day operational control of the vehicle. Therefore, we welcome legal clarity on the way the automated vehicle is operated and controlled by the customer, as well as on those responsibilities which the legal owner or supplier would be accountable for.
