“With the increasing adoption of semi-autonomous vehicles and the potential for fully autonomous vehicles, several policy-related questions and challenges are beginning to emerge. It’s important that the insurance industry play a central role in policymaking discussions to develop a uniform legal and regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles. Ensuring that a clear risk transfer mechanism is in place will help facilitate the development of autonomous vehicles and the improved safety we expect they will bring to our roads.”

Insuring Autonomy White Paper
Autonomous vehicles - or "AVs" - are a growing presence on American roadways, and with them come several significant policy questions and challenges. It will be important to address an ever-increasing AV world in a comprehensive manner that spurs innovation, increases public safety, provides peace of mind and protects American drivers and consumers. Travelers believes that the auto insurance industry should - and will - play a critical role, as lawmakers, regulators and society understand the new AV world. This white paper outlines Travelers' perspective and recommendations on these important public policy issues.

Will they be able to pay attention, when needed? Will regulatory and liability frameworks keep up in a world mixed with old and new roadway technologies? Attendees explored these questions and more about the changing risks of the road.
