Abstract

Topic of this consultation: The Centre for Connected and Automated Vehicles (CCAV) has
asked the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission to
examine options for regulating automated road vehicles. It is a three-year project, running from
March 2018 to March 2021. This preliminary consultation paper focuses on the safety of
passenger vehicles.
Driving automation refers to a broad range of vehicle technologies. Examples range from
widely-used technologies that assist human drivers (such as cruise control) to vehicles that
drive themselves with no human intervention. We concentrate on automated driving systems
which do not need human drivers for at least part of the journey.
This paper looks at are three key themes. First, we consider how safety can be assured before
and after automated driving systems are deployed. Secondly, we explore criminal and civil
liability. Finally, we examine the need to adapt road rules for artificial intelligence.
