Driverless cars could lower car insurance rate
The property and casualty insurance industry derives nearly 40 percent of its premiums from vehicle insurance. So driverless cars, in particular, could put a major dent in the sale of coverage for personal and commercial vehicles.

If driverless cars become a reality, and if, as a result, there is a dramatic reduction in the number and severity of vehicle-related accidents. Therefore, there is no doubt it is going to have a major impact on auto insurance.
It’s not the end of auto insurance, but certainly, companies will have to adapt. With measures that could include expanding lines of businesses unrelated to autos.
If they become legal, logically the insurance companies will add additional factors to determine the insurance rate for self-driving cars. But most likely will lower the car insurance rates. Even if driverless cars became prevalent, drivers still would need comprehensive coverage. That would cover damage to a policyholder’s car not involving a collision with another car, such as damage from fire, explosions, earthquakes, fallen trees, riots, and theft.
