From June 2018, drivers will be able to use remote control parking on British roads. Changes to the Highway Code were fully supported in the framework of unlocking the potential of technology to transform car travel for those with mobility challenges and make driving more energy efficient.
However, automated parking is just one aspect to be implemented; these changes to the Highway code and to the British regulatory framework aim at making sure that UK roads can support automated driving technology, which is set to be introduced by 2021.
“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.” stated British Transport Minister Jesse Norman.
