Driverless Cars - call for responses

14 August 2014

The UK Government announced its plans to review the legislative and regulatory framework for developing and testing driverless cars in the UK. The review will cover the best and safest ways to carry out trials where there is an individual in the vehicle who is qualified and capable of taking control of the car, and also look further ahead to the implications of potential use of fully autonomous vehicles.

The Department for Transport published the Terms of Reference and a Discussion Document on 4th August, and encourages response to the Discussion Document, noting the closing date of 19th September 2014.
