Posted June 08, 2018 06:00:46 Insurance companies in Australia are set to roll out a new type of car insurance policy next month.
A total of 14 car insurance companies will offer new types of car policy for the 2018/19 season.
The new car policy will cover the entire cost of a vehicle, but only cover its emissions, including any fuel leaks, that result from the vehicle’s emissions.
If you own a vehicle that is covered under a car insurance plan, you can pay for it on the spot.
There are some differences between a driverless vehicle policy and an emissions-free policy.
Driverless vehicles will be able to be driven off the road in the same way as they can be driven on, and drivers will be allowed to use their own hands and pedals to control the vehicle.
Car insurance companies are currently trying to develop a system to enable autonomous vehicles to drive themselves, but that will likely be a years-long process.
One thing that is common in all new policies is that they will only cover the costs of emissions-related damage.
This is a significant change from the current state of affairs in Australia, where drivers often end up paying higher premiums for vehicles that emit more pollutants than their emissions would indicate.
Newer policy drivers will have to take into account that the car may not be driving itself, or it may be operating without a human driver at all.
For example, a driver could use the vehicle to transport a child who is sick, or a disabled person.
While the new policy will only apply to the emissions of vehicles on the road, there are some benefits to the technology, as well.
A driverless car will not require a driver to be present at all times, and it will not be limited to driving distances of 30 kilometres or less.
Additionally, the new vehicle policy will not have to be approved by a government agency, and car insurance firms will not need to get approval from the Federal Government to start selling the policies.
