‘Driverless car impact audit’ for all new infrastructure urged in new report

Driverless cars should prompt a review of proposals to expand road capacity or public transport, according to a new report. The report recommends that all major infrastructure project being planned now should study the impact of driverless cars, given that the first generation of the vehicles has arrived in the U.K, U.S and Singapore, and the progressive roll-out will start this decade and is likely to speed up in a “substantial” way in the 2020s.
