Guernsey could trial driverless cars
Efforts are under way to make Guernsey one of the first places in the world to introduce driverless cars.
Google has been developing and testing the technology and put the vehicles on show earlier this week.
A group of island business people and legal experts say they have held talks with the internet giant to see if the vehicles could work in Guernsey.
At the same time, that group is also drafting driverless car legislation, in attempt to change the way local laws are created in the future.
They are working on a new system of legislating, called 'crowd law' which could allow anyone in the community to develop or contribute to new legislation, speeding up the process of introducing new laws.
But with driverless car legislation acting as the initial law to show 'crowd law' can work, it has raised questions as to whether Guernsey is ready for automated vehicles.
Karl Marshall, President of the Guernsey Kart & Motor Club says: "The island's road lay-out, with narrow lanes and filters, could prove difficult for the technology to deal with, and he says."
