“UK to allow driverless cars on public roads in January” (BBC)

I was very surprised to read the following quote today from Business Secretary Vince Cable on the BBC website:

“Today’s announcement will see driverless cars take to our streets in less than six months, putting us at the forefront of this transformational technology and opening up new opportunities for our economy and society.”

Exciting times. I wonder how other drivers will react if they see a car with no driver at the wheel? Perhaps the only person in the car will be in the passenger seat reading a book?
