The government has said it wants to take advantage of the booming self-driving car market, which is worth 42 billion pounds and could create an estimated 38,000 new jobs.

Transport Minister Grant Shapps said: “We want Britain to be at the forefront of developing and using this amazing technology, which is why we are investing millions in important safety research and legislation to ensure we reap the full benefits that this technology promises.”

While some self-driving vehicles may be allowed on big roads by next year, Friday’s announcement also sets the framework for a broader launch, including public transit and delivery vehicles.

The funding package includes £35 million for safety research, which will go toward new legislation planned for implementation by 2025.

“The legislation will hold manufacturers accountable for the behavior of vehicles during autonomous driving, which means that human drivers are not responsible for accidents related to driving while the vehicle is in control,” the government statement said.
