UK Driverless cars ? what a joke?

I think it would be better to rephrase the statement as “uk driverless cars in the South of England”.

Anybody who travels around the North of England would know that our roads in town and city centre are busting at the seams with traffic. We have had very little investment to our road structures here in the North for years. Successive governments have neglected to update the northern towns and cities. They cancelled the tram scheme in Leeds because of the costs, the East West train lines were to be electrified, but that never came off, because of lack of finance, now they can suddenly find some money by selling off their share in Eurostar to fund the development of Gatwick airport along with other projects down in the South, once again neglecting the northern towns and cities.

The only thing that I can think of that the government have done is to widen parts of the M62 motorway. We are desperately in need of a new road infrastructure to take us from North to South, before we completely grind to a halt. We all know what a nightmare it is trying to drive around West

I must now admit that i thought that would not see electric cars being charged on the streets of cities, but they are now here? but i am not sure about the UK driverless Cars

Yorkshire in the rush hour traffic.

Now the government are going to give a £10 million prize to fund a town or city that becomes a testing ground for the UK driverless Cars. What a joke, the name of Milton Keynes has already been mentioned on more than one occasion, so I reckon that it’s a done deal. What chance would we have in the North for driverless cars, we are too congested as it is and one our largest cities Leeds, had to miss about on its tram system.

We do not need UK driverless Cars but a decent road and rail system, especially here in Yorkshire. The North is and will still be starved of investment, never mind this ridiculous idea of driverless cars, what a joke.
