Google’s self-drive cars had to be stopped from crashing

Google drivers had to intervene to stop its self-driving cars from crashing on California’s roads 13 times between September 2014 and November 2015. The disclosure follows a local regulator’s demand for the information.

Six other car tech companies also revealed data about autonomous-driving safety incidents of their own. Google wants to build cars without manual controls, but California-based Consumer Watchdog now says the company’s own data undermines its case.

Volkswagen pledges to ‘rebuild trust’ in UK, but will not pay out

Volkswagen has promised to “regain the trust” of its British customers but will not pay any compensation to the 1.2m motorists in the UK affected by its attempts to rig diesel emissions tests. In September, the German carmaker admitted to fitting almost half a million cars in the US with “defeat devices” that duped regulators into thinking the vehicles were less polluting. Subsequently, VW declared that 11m vehicles worldwide were affected, including almost 1.2m in the UK.

UK employer group CBI urges changes to apprenticeship levy

The CBI head has written privately to the business secretary to warn that the apprenticeship levy could impose huge costs on employers without any improvement in the training they provide. After arguing against the levy for months — companies see it as part of a package of onerous new impositions — the employers’ organisation has bowed to the inevitability of the changes.

Oil price crash means petrol could become cheaper than bottled water

Petrol will soon cost less than bottled water as the relentless decline in oil prices sends fuel down to 86p a litre, it has been claimed. Brent crude fell to below $30 a barrel for the first time since 2004 on Wednesday evening – and has fallen by more 73pc since reaching highs of $115 last summer. Motoring group RAC said pump prices now could fall back to levels last seen in the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2009, if the commodity plunges to as low as $10, a forecast made by Standard Chartered bank earlier this week.

Jaguar Land Rover is the best place to work in the UK

Jaguar Land Rover is the best employer in the UK, according to a Bloomberg survey.

The luxury carmaker has been named the best place to work in the UK, followed by AstraZeneca, a pharmaceutical giant, and Harrods, the department store. Statista conducted the poll of 400 firms across 25 industries for Bloomberg.

Jaguar scored a top score of 8.56 on Bloombergs’s index of British employers – where 0 means “I wouldn’t recommend my employer under any circumstances” and 10 means “I would definitely recommend my employer.”
