Driverless cars headed for UK roads

Driverless cars will be allowed on public roads in the UK from January 2015, the government has announced.

They've asked cities to compete to host special trials to test the technology.

Business Secretary Vince Cable said: "Today's announcement will see driverless cars take to our streets in less than six months."

He said it would put the UK "at the forefront of this transformational technology and opening up new opportunities".
