That’s not how it works. Liability isn’t binary. It doesn’t necessarily rest with the driver, either. If a critical component of the vehicle fails, is the driver at fault for that? Maybe. If the owner of the van replaces an integrated system component with an untested 3rd party system and it fails, it’s likely that the owner would be on the hook. Any idea what this devices EULA does? I’d read it very carefully before use.As for liability concerns, liability rest with the driver with or without this device.
That’s why there isn’t any kind of land rush into developing retrofit kits for existing vehicles. There’s too much risk involved, insurance companies are likely to void policies, and it only makes sense if... The company has no assets to risk. Kinda like comma.ai. It Hots’s play to get bought out by a player who is late to the game. He knows he’s relatively judgement-proof.
smit, did you ever ask your insurance agent about this? I’m very curious to know what they may have said.
