Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first A fake suburb in Florida, complete with sidewalks, shops and parents out with their children.

The great driverless car race: Where will the UK place?

The great driverless car race: Where will the UK place?
