Remove regulations on self-driving cars - UN/ECE R79 regulation

Petition Details

Full Self Driving cars are unable to operate in in the UK due to EU regulations.

This is because they must comply with the new UN/ECE R79 regulation on driver assistance systems, potentially reducing the safety of self-driving vehicles in the UK

Additional Information

Tesla vehicles driving with Autopilot engaged are up to 9 times less likely to be involved in an accident (2019) and this is increasing.

The UK removing UN/ECE R79 regulations should be rapidly implemented to increase the safety of Autonomous users here.
