Green Motion awarded the Green World Award 2023
What a win!
Hands-free driving could arrive on UK roads by spring next year, the government has said, as it launched a consultation on the technology. Click here to read the full story.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has issued a call for evidence into automated lane keeping systems (ALKS).
Such technology controls a car's movements and can keep it in lane for extended periods, although drivers need to be ready to take back control.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders claims it could cut accidents.
The technology could be given the go ahead for speeds of up to 70mph, according to the DfT, potentially making long stretches of tedious motorway driving a thing of the past.
ALKS technology has been approved by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), of which the UK is a member.
The UK government wants to hear from voices within the motoring industry to decide how to safely implement the technology, with the consultation closing on 27 October.
