Au­tonomous ve­hi­cles: higher speed lim­its…

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR SHOUT -

I think 80mph is fine. The trucks still go 56mph so you can just pot­ter along with them. Works well in Italy and France. Self driv­ing cars are not for me… it’s like a self eat­ing meal or buy­ing a book of com­pleted cross­words. Ian Fer­gu­son

A mix­ture of au­tonomous and man­u­ally con­trolled ve­hi­cles will never be ac­ci­dent-free, re­gard­less of speed and other pa­ram­e­ters. Ju­lian Kuipers

I think 80mph is achiev­able, but only if you have a guy run­ning along in front with a red flag to alert other road users. Pawl Burt

UK driv­ers re­quire ed­u­ca­tion on lane eti­quette be­fore 80mph will be safe on our roads. Greg Wee­don Se­ries III Land Rover on cross­plies – I’ll sit in with the HGV’S at 55mph. Ev­ery other clas­sic I’ve driven from the late Six­ties on­wards will han­dle mo­tor­ways, some of the bet­ter ones will ac­tu­ally reach 80. Hell, an Es­cort 1.3 will do an in­di­cated 95mph per­fectly well – al­legedly of course os­sifer. Dun­can Ab­bott

There are nu­mer­ous ac­c­ci­dents and mo­tor­way clo­sures with a 70mph limit, so un­til peo­ple learn how to drive, I don’t think it’s a good idea. Scott An­der­son

I don’t think that au­tonomous ve­hi­cles in an ur­ban or ru­ral en­vi­ron­ment will be a re­al­ity in my life time as there are just far too many vari­ables. But strictly for mo­tor­way use only I think it’s a great idea. Ash­ley Christie
