75% Of Drivers Say They Wouldn’t Feel Safe In An Autonomous Vehicle

Let's see how these poll numbers compare to you guys. Would you feel safe in a totally autonomous vehicle? Frankly, I think autonomous vehicles will be perfectly fine once humans are no longer allowed to drive. So, until that happens, my answer is "no."

AAA’s survey of 1,800 drivers found that 75% of drivers[PDF] say they wouldn’t feel safe in a driverless vehicle. But it’s worthing nothing that 60% said they would like access to some kind of self-driving feature, like self-parking, lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and other options the next time they buy a new car.
