  • As currently written, our laws are not well-equipped to handle the increase in automated vehicles on the road. Moreover, the law and ethics often differ, and doing the safe thing on the road could cause a human to drive illegally. Would an autonomous vehicle drive faster than the speed limit if it needed to, drive at all if a loose gas cap turned on a check engine light, or execute the safest route around an obstacle if it meant breaking the rules of the road? In their videocast Automated Transportation’s Legal and Ethical Risks, Eversheds Sutherland (US) Partner Jason McCarter and Eversheds Sutherland (International) Partner Fabian Volz discuss the legal and ethical risks associated with automated driving.
