I volunteer to be a test driver!
I’ve just found out that yesterday, the UK Government announced that driverless, or self driving, cars will start to be tested on UK roads by the end of this year.
The Government are hoping that these cars will reduce congestion on British roads.
I am very excited to hear about these plans, but for very different reasons. I explained all in detail at Independent Voiceslast year, when California passed a state Bill allowing driverless cars on their roads.
All that’s left for me to say is that I didn’t expect the UK to start testing these cars as soon as this year. I’m thrilled that they plan to!
