abstract
"The Paper considers how the regulatory framework may need to be adapted for self-driving vehicles. As part of that review, they consider critical questions for lawmakers regarding how to regulate corporates in the automated vehicle sector and the allocation of criminal responsibility between the driver (or ‘user in charge’, when the automated system is in operation) of the vehicle, and the manufacturer or developer. It is tentatively proposed that automated driving systems would only be allowed where they are authorised. The Paper envisages an “Automated Driving System Entity”, which is described as “the organisation putting the system forward for authorisation”, which would have legal responsibilities to ensure that the systems are safe and be subject to a system of regulatory sanctions (for example, improvement notices, fines and, where appropriate, withdrawal of approval) if the vehicle functions in a way which would be considered a criminal offence if a human was driving."--
