Survey: No driver, no problem; insurance execs see little impact

The survey, “Automobile Insurance in the Era of Autonomous Vehicles,” asked senior executives representing $85 billion of the personal and commercial auto insurance industry about the impact of autonomous cars on their business. The results are a bit startling, given the potential pitfall that driverless cars could have on insurance and premiums. Of those surveyed, 84 percent don’t expect autonomous vehicles to significantly affect the insurance business until 2025.
