Changing Driving Laws to Support Automated Vehicles

The submission to the National Transport Commission's Discussion Paper in relation to changing driving laws to support automated vechicles, dated October 2017, was prepared by the Law Council. 

The Law Council is grateful for the input from the Law Society of South Australaia and the assistance of its National Insurance Lawyers Group of the Legal Practice Section and the Law Society of New South Wales in the preparation of this submission.

The Discussion Paper seeks feedback on how driving laws should provide for the public deployment of automated vehicles, new legal obligations that may be required, and the establishment of legal obligations for automated driving system entities (ADSEs).

The Law Council has considered the Discussion Paper from the perspective of ensuring persons injured in accidents involving automated vehicles, will be entitled to appropriate levels of compensation.
