The “Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband”, the federal organisation of a German consumer association, has issued a statement criticising the draft law on automated driving, proposed by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, from both a consumer and data protection perspective. The association states that there is no legal security for drivers as key concepts such as “highly automatised” (hochautomatisiert) or “fully automatised” (vollautomatisiert) are not defined clearly enough. It calls for a regulation in which drivers of highly automatised cars do not have a permanent supervisory duty and drivers of fully automatised cars have no supervisory duty at all. As far as privacy is concerned, the association criticises the fact that the draft law enables authorities to process car data. It calls for the establishment of a Trust Centre which would administer car data and function as an intermediary between data holders and entitled third parties.
