What a win!
The UK Government has introduced new laws that will allow drivers to use remote control parking and other advanced driving assistance (ADAS) systems on British roads.
The Department for Transport (DfT) says updates will provide clarity for motorists about how the technologies can be used, and allow the increased use of features like cruise control.
The updates, it says, will make sure drivers are ready to use these new technologies safely and ensure the law is flexible for future breakthroughs.
After consulting on changes to the Highway Code and relevant regulations earlier this year, the technology received overwhelming support from a range of groups including manufacturers, insurance groups and haulage companies.
Transport minister Jesse Norman said: “Advanced driver assistance systems are already starting to revolutionise driving.
“It’s encouraging to see the strong support for these innovations from a range of stakeholders.
“We will continue to review our driving laws, in order to ensure drivers can enjoy the potential of these new tools safely.”
Highway Code rules will be changed so clarity is given on both the use of remote control parking, and driver assistance systems that can control aspects of driving such as changing lanes on the motorway.
