UK to allow autonomous cars in 2021

The UK government plans to allow the use of some systems while driving on the country’s roads.

According to data released by the UK Department of Transport, the UK government plans to allow the introduction of automatic vehicle lane-keeping technology on the Kingdom’s roads in 2021. This system allows the driver not to interfere with driving at speeds up to 110 km / h for a very long time.

Transport Secretary Rachel McLean said the technology will reduce the number of accidents in the country and make driving easier for motorists, and will make the UK the first country in the world to legally allow the use of semi-automatic steering systems.

Lane Keeping Assist is currently permitted on UK roads, but only at speeds up to 60 km / h. The adoption of the relevant law will allow cars to start independently moving on highways in the spring of next year.
