Compared to present day, it might be more straightforward to determine who's at fault if we reach a stage where many/most vehicles on the road are truly autonomous. There will be increased levels of data collection and cameras. In scenarios where both vehicles are autonomous and neither 'driver' was engaging with the vehicle during the incident, the fault will simply sit with one of the manufacturers as the data logs and cameras will show which vehicle failed.Autonomous cars ??
How will they sort out insurance liability in the event of an accident ?
Who will be liable as there will be no driver as such ?
They will be in the back having a kip
Or boozed up having been down the pub ??
Let's face it, it's going to be a long transition. At present with various driver assistance technology, it's always made clear the driver needs to remain alert and, ultimately, in control. However I believe further down the line, if indeed individuals are still allowed to own a vehicle, the time will come where they are fully autonomous with no requirement for a 'driver.'
Alas, I reckon we'll all be six foot under or in an urn by that time
