E-scooters and computer assisted vehicles: the implications for insurance

CPD Certified

1 hour's CPD can be claimed for this event if relevant to your learning and development needs.

In this IIL accident webinar, Matthew Avery will talk about automated driving, which will be introduced on UK roads in 2021. As the Government is keen to promote this and other new mobility solutions, this webinar will explain what and when this will happen.

Description

In support of the UK Government Transport Strategy, new mobility solutions like e-scooters are seen to offer flexibility and sustainable transport. However, they are not necessarily a safe mode of transport and tests suggest todays cars are not well designed to interact with e-scooters. Likewise, the Government is keen to introduce automation on UK motorways allowing the public to watch TV as the car drives for them. Again, there are safety challenges; will the systems be safe, will drivers use them properly and will the public adopt them? And how does the new strict liability regime operate under the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act?

E-scooters and computer assisted vehicles: the implications for insurance

Gain an insight into:

  • E-scooters – what do we need to do to make them safe?
  • Automation – when will it hit the roads and in what form?
  • What does automation mean for UK motor insurers?
