- The Data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT), the annual turnover of the UK automotive industry increased to a record GBP71.6 billion (US$89 billion) in 2015. For the same year, Timetric’s Insurance Intelligence Center [IIC] estimates the total direct premium written by the insurance industry for the same year at GBP15.5 billion, (US$20.8 billion).
- The outcome of the UK’s government consultation into driverless vehicles and adoption identified that although the UK legal and regulatory framework is not a barrier to the testing of AVs on public roads, the incumbent laws governing data privacy, road traffic laws and patent licensing make the facilitation of AV adoption problematic. The report alsoset out the UK government plans to introduce a single insurer model for driverless and conventional cars, and identified 2018 as the preferred date to amend road traffic legislation to take AVs into consideration.
