Here So I won't rehearse it all again today. Suffice to say, there is an awful lot of unqualified promotion behind driver-less vehicles and an awful lot of cheating behind their presentation. Take it from me, they are not for ordinary people who simply couldn't afford or maintain them, they would be unable to replace the 300 billion efficient miles a year required to sustain the community that drivers do, and the technology, good enough to fly planes on empty straight paths to land on empty straight runways, is far too basic to operate vehicles on busy alternating roads. See How will they comply with this nonsense?
In view of that, it is very worrying to actually read Nick Reed and the TRL on all this so now look at these tweets from him. He has a one to one with BRAKE of all people.
See loads of anti driver Brake rubbish here But worse than that, he doesn't think a CV in driving and road safety should count when it comes to what is good on the roads.
Well I have asked Nick to respond to all my points on here, but it is my experience that vested interests usually overcome honesty and reality.
In the meantime let's get these academics to consult experts; there is no degree in the subject that counts in this life and death issue.
So far Driver-less vehicles are not based on reality or for the community but more on an anti driver ideology and TRL is certainly connected with all that.

@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL @AAPresident Impressive academics but your driving & road safety expertise is what? That's what matters in this.— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016
@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL There's more killed from accidents in the home, strangling, self harm, suicide than from any cause on the road!— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016
@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL Our drivers keep all 65 million alive. The dead are mostly down to irrelevant profiteering road safety policy.— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016
@DriverUnion @PoliceChiefs @IAMgroup It's work in progress but eventually they could be even better.— Nick Reed (@nreed_trl) April 21, 2016
@nreed_trl @PoliceChiefs @IAMgroup Ah work in progress? So on what basis are they now on the road? To kid people? @AAPresident— Drivers E. Midlands (@EastMidsDrivers) April 22, 2016
@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL @Brakecharity @20splentyforus @PACTS Our road safety is run by greens, with no CV & a hatred of infrastructure.— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016

@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL @Brakecharity @20splentyforus @PACTS When it comes to road safety, driving & crucial infrastructure yes CVs matter.— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016
— Keith Peat (@BogTrotter1) April 22, 2016Right so on road safety, driving, economics of road infrastructure, TRL aren't interested in 'Credentials' Got it! https://t.co/v0o8HKTHRG@nreed_trl @NewsfromTRL So, no CV in road safety & driving? So who's programming these vehicles? @Brakecharity @20splentyforus @PACTS ?— Drivers Union. (@DriverUnion) April 21, 2016
TRL have refused point blank to address legitimate concerns about driver-less vehicles and asked us to close this page down. See the exchanges & how they make their money here
