That this House congratulates Thatcham Research for its Stop the Crash campaign to raise awareness about the safety benefits of autonomous emergency braking (AEB) systems; notes the growing body of research that AEB reduces the occurrence of low speed crashes by around 20 per cent as well as being important in mitigating the effects of higher speed crashes; and welcomes the initiative taken by esure Group in offering motor insurance premium reductions to encourage people to purchase cars fitted with AEB as standard in order to support safety on UK roads.
