Its all very well stating “My ministers will ensure the United Kingdom is at the forefront of technology for new forms of transport, including autonomous and electric vehicles, but that does not address the state of the countries roads, we need to concentrate on that problem first which would also create further jobs if Highways England were to employee extra staff and funding to solve this problem first, and at the end of the day who will be able to afford these types of vehicles, we have overpriced our vehicles and housing already let alone futuristic vehicles.
