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

Online event
Tuesday, 30 March 2021
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Matthew Avery, Director of Insurance Research, Thatcham Research
  • Accident

In this IIL accident webinar, Matthew Avery discussed automated driving which is being introduced on UK roads. As the Government is keen to promote this and other new mobility solutions, this webinar explained what and when this will happen.

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 today's 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?

By the end of this webinar members would have gained 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?
