Could driverless cars cause a car insurance crash?

Wouldn’t it be a shame if insurance companies started making less money…could start happening from 2017…

If were all being ferried around in autonomous motors, insurers wont be able to base premium prices on a drivers age or experience simply because there will be no driver.

Driving on auto-pilot. The idea of the driverless car first started to really intrigue motorists back in the sci-fi obsessed 1950s when features like auto-pilot and sonic keys were first put to the test features which today go by the name of cruise control and remote locking, respectively.

Here in the UK, meanwhile, driverless pods are being put through their paces and are expected to be a feature on the roads of Milton Keynes within the next few years.
