Introduction: the advantages of implementing the driving technologies are obvious – the accessibility of vehicles for people who cannot drive because of their physical or mental deficiencies; the environmental performance of such vehicles; the reduction in accidents caused by mistakes of drivers. At the same time, the legal regulation of the relations connected with the operation of autonomous cars leaves much to be desired. Methods: the methodological framework for the study is a set of methods of scientific knowledge, among which the main are the methods of historicism, system, analysis, as well as the comparative law method. Results: the author researched the main theories potentially applicable in considering the liability for the damage caused by the operation of an autonomous vehicle. Conclusions: it is established that the current level of the legislative regulation of the compensation for the damage caused by the operation of an autonomous car is not sufficient; the most promising solution to the problem is proposed.

Key words: responsibility, damage, autonomous car, source of increased danger, legal regulation.
