Soon you will be able to watch TV in a self-driving car on UK roads

Watching TV and other content in self-driving AI cars is likely to become legal soon in the UK. This is one of the changes the UK government is considering in draft legislation for such vehicles.

Department of Transportation (via register) has confirmed plans to make changes to the Road Code, which include rules and guidelines for the use of roads in the UK. The changes are designed to allow users of self-driving cars to experience the full benefits of the technology, while still making it clear what the actual responsibilities of the people in these cars are. It will become clearer as these types of autonomous details are likely to become more common on the road.
