Sit back, relax, and watch TV while your car drives you
New rules for fully self-driving cars in the UK will let the driver watch something other than the road – TV!
While there aren’t any cars with this capability just yet, the UK government is preparing for it. Drivers will be able to watch TV on a screen managed by the vehicle.. if the vehicle needs them to take control, the TV will need to stop – much like a seat-back screen on a plane.
Using a handheld device while driving will still be illegal.
These new rules are ahead of a more detailed regulatory framework expected to be in effect in 2025.
