The Law Commission has published its analysis of responses to the first consultation on the law affecting the safety of automated vehicles (“AVs”, also known as driverless vehicles). Alex Glassbrook took part in the consultation, and his paper on Civil Liability for AV’s is quoted by the Law Commission on contributory negligence (p.87), causation (p.90) and the possibility of review of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 (p.91).

The Law Commission analysis paper is at the link below.  If you would like a copy of Alex’s complete paper for the Law Commission, discussing how the AEVA 2018 deals with causation, contribution and contributory negligence, and how those issues might be viewed by the Courts, please contact Alex at
