MPs call for ‘minister of driverless cars’

Liability for crashes and how drivers will be trained and licensed need to be looked at now, according to the Commons transport committee. People also need to be reassured about safety, it added. The Department for Transport (DfT) said safety was its “first priority” and it was “working closely with industry”. A mixture of driverless, semi-autonomous and manual cars could be on UK roads well within the next ten years, according to evidence heard by the committee.
