The UK is planning to allow driverless cars to use public roads by next year. At the moment autonomous vehicles are only allowed on private roads. It’s expected that the first vehicles will be seen on some British streets by January next year.
Previously, the Department for Transport had said it would allow self-driving cars to be trialled on public roads by the end of 2013.
