Aon and road safety
Absence of vehicle operator liability is likely to create interesting questions about who will assume the
responsibilities and liabilities for accidents and may consequently have potential implications for the owners of
public and private infrastructure. It will also certainly raise questions about a potential shift in responsibility
toward Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). It is possible that auto industry OEMs may, in the future,
have to take on liabilities that are currently attributable to “driver error.”
