Self-driving cars ‘will transform the lives of the elderly’

The lives of elderly and the disabled will be transformed by self-driving cars, the Transport Secretary will claim today. The first autonomous cars are expected to be on Britain’s roads by 2021. In a speech in London, Chris Grayling will promote the benefits of this new mode of transport to the economy and to society.

The first autonomous cars are expected to be on Britain’s roads by 2021 and increase mobility for nearly a third of the population.

The government has estimated that driverless cars could be worth £28 billion to the economy by 2035.

It has also been claimed automated cars will make the roads safer, with 85 per cent of accidents last year caused by human error. It is hoped this will help push down premiums.

But – laying out ambitions for Britain to lead the ‘automated vehicle revolution – Mr Grayling will also argue that this technology could be of greatest use to the ageing population.

Nearly a third of the population will be over sixty by 2030 and people with mobility difficulties are far less likely to drive.

Speaking at the Association of British Insurers annual conference in London, Mr Grayling will say: ‘We’ve seen nothing in our lifetimes that can compare with the motoring revolution that’s just around the corner.
