Americans Don't Trust Self-Driving Cars: Study

Half of U.S. adults say fully automated or self-driving vehicles are more dangerous than traditional cars driven by people, according to a new survey by Reuters/Ipsos.

The majority (63%) said they would not pay more for self-driving features and 41% said they would not pay more than $2,000, according to the online survey of 2,200 U.S. adults.

Two-thirds of those surveyed said there should be higher government safety standards for self-driving cars than for traditional vehicles.

The findings were similar to a 2018 survey by Reuters/Ipsos.

A recent annual study by AAA found that seven in 10 (71%) consumers would be afraid to ride in a fully self-driving vehicle. A similar study a year earlier found similar results, with 73% of American drivers too afraid to ride in a fully autonomous vehicle.

    "Won't pay more than $2000 for the Auto-tonomous option?"
    If you look at the 2018 electoral map, the RED part wants nothing to do
    with this!
