Americans wary of self-driving cars but acknowledge their promising capabilities

1 min read

According to a new survey, 93% of Americans have concerns about self-driving car technology. The survey, conducted by Forbes Legal, interviewed 2,000 Americans to better understand attitudes towards these vehicles. The idea of self-driving cars suffered a significant blow when Tesla was forced to recall two high-profile autonomous driving systems last year. The market has responded to these incidents, with the survey finding that 45% of consumers feel skeptical or concerned about self-driving cars, while only 16% expressed excitement and 8% had a positive outlook. Some consumers see potential benefits in self-driving technology, with around 30% stating that they are likely to use or own a self-driving car within the next five years. The survey also found that most consumers believe that the biggest benefits of self-driving cars will be enhanced mobility for the elderly and people with disabilities, as well as increased transportation efficiency.
