According to the BBC, the UK government has announced that as of January 2015, driverless cars will be allowed on public roads, ordering "a review of the UK's road regulations to provide appropriate guidelines."

"Today's announcement will see driverless cars take to our streets in less than six months, putting us at the forefront of this transformational technology and opening up new opportunities for our economy and society," he said.

UK engineers, including a group at the University of Oxford, have been experimenting with driverless cars. But, concerns about legal and insurance issues have so far restricted the machines to private roads.

Other countries have, however, been swifter to provide access to public routes.
