"Of course there are. Interference with vehicles contrary to section 9 of the Criminal Attempts Act 1981 and offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990."

The whole thing about speeding fines for self driving cars seems a bit of a red herring too. After all, they are only going to be allowed on the roads when they are "safe". If "safe" means driving to the road conditions, then should a self driving car with radar, lidar, optics etc not do 90 or a 100 down a clear motorway? If it's a "safe" car, it's not going to do 50mph past a school or anywhere there's parked cars and a restricted "view". A "safe" AV is going to slow down if it's "view" is obstructed in any way.
