10 September 2015

*1529   Mr Thomson : To ask the Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development—Will the Government consider mandating Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) on all new cars given that (a) the European New Car Assessment Programme’s assessment of AEB systems suggests that they can reduce rear end crashes by one quarter or more and lead to a significant reduction of injuries, and (b) both the Australasian New Car Assessment Program and Australian Medical Association advocate the mandating of AEB on all new cars, consistent with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe making AEB systems mandatory for new heavy vehicles from the start of 2015.
