As the Chancellor says he will prepare the ground for driverless cars, Alex Glassbrook sees US and EU lawmakers moving faster.

Many states are starting to consider, individually, the legal implications of the next advances in driving technology.  But legislators in the European Union and the United States of America are looking further into the future.

Alex Glassbrook (author of “The Law of Driverless Cars: An Introduction”) examines those two approaches – and the challenge of writing laws for an unexplored, robot world.
