UK: Law on driverless car insurance coming ‘soon’ – transport secretary

Britain will soon have legislation that tackles insurance issues involving self-driving cars, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has revealed. The Birmingham Mail reported that the government is set to introduce a measure that deals with liability concerns and insurance claims in driverless car accidents.
“We will soon have a bill that will do things like addressing the insurance issue for driverless cars,” Grayling told the publication, in an apparent reference to the Modern Transport Bill announced in the Queen’s speech in May 2016. The transport secretary told the Birmingham Mail in January that the legislation would be proposed “in the next month or so.”
