Driverless cars will be tested on UK roads as early as next year, after a shake-up of legal restrictions expected in this week’s Budget.
Philip Hammond is set to announce a clear-out of regulations to allow developers of self-driving vehicles to put them through widespread trials for the first time.
The move will form part of a package of measures that will “put high-tech Britain in the fast lane”, he will say – in an attempt to show the Government is not consumed by Brexit. There will also be hundreds of millions of pounds for more electric car charge points, to boost sales of battery-driven cars and for next-generation 5G mobile networks. “The Budget will build a country fit for the future and make the UK a leader in the technological revolution,” a Government source said.
Ministers have already set out an aspiration for driverless cars to be on Britain’s roads by 2021, several years ahead of earlier forecasts.
Experts believe they will reduce the number of accidents and make roads safer – despite warnings that hackers could seize the controls remotely and cause motorway pile-ups.
Eighty eight injured Yemenis, along with their companions, have left Aden to complete their treatment in Indian hospitals under the supervision of the Emirates Red Crescent, ERC.
The move follows the directives of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and follow up by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the ERC.
The ERC is bearing the treatment costs as part of the UAE’s constant efforts to ease the suffering of the Yemeni people, and stand with them in their difficult times they face as a result of the ongoing war and perpetration by the Houthi militia against them.
The UAE leadership has provided several grants to the Yemeni people, the most recent of which was the treatment of 1,500 Yemenis in Jordan, Sudan and India, under the supervision of the ERC.
The UAE has also dispatched medical and relief convoys in support of its brethren in Yemen.
