“Section 2 of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 (liability of insurers etc where accident caused by automated vehicle) is amended as follows—

(a) in subsection (1)(a), omit “when driving itself”;

(b) in subsection (2)(a), omit “when driving itself”.—(Bill Esterson.)

This new clause would remove the need for people to have to prove that an automated vehicle was “driving itself” if they make a legal claim for compensation under section 2 of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018.
