A study published today revealed that more than four out of five people would prefer not to ride in fully autonomous vehicles. Almost 50% of the respondents would like to drive in a simple vehicle with no self-driving capabilities, maybe just with partially self-driving or completely self-driving technology, it is what the results of the study from University of Michigan show. Only 6% of the participants at this study would like to drive such a car, while 39% of them prefer partially self-driving cars.
If we'd have to make some comparisons between the young drivers and the older ones, than the first category is more likely to drive the full self-driving cars. Still, not all of the young respondents gave this answer, but only 19% of them, their ages differ from 18 to 29. Partially self-driving cars are more loved by young people from 30 to 44, considering 43% of them said they would prefer partially self-driving cars, compared with 35 percent who said they favor vehicles with no self-driving technology.
Though automakers consider they fully autonomous vehicles are a good solution for reducing traffic accidents, people need more proof of that, that is why they stay skeptical. Only 9.7% of respondents do not have concerns about self-driving capabilities, while the rest of them still have concerns. At this survey participated 618 respondents, which makes it trustworthy, carmakers must think about some solutions now.
