How have self-driving cars been taken into account in the new law?

As regards policy holders and those involved in accidents, this issue has in practice no bearing as they will in any case be compensated primarily from motor liability insurance.

The new law makes it possible for the manufacturer of the whole vehicle or part of it to be liable for compensation of a traffic accident, in accordance with the Product Liability Act. In practice, the compensation can be directed to the manufacturer in those situations where the accident is not caused by the driver but by e.g. a vehicle defect or programming fault.
