The study revealed that 66% of people feel uncomfortable traveling in a driverless car at 70 mph. Although the younger generation were significantly more accepting of autonomous technology than their older peers. Close to 45% of 25-36 year olds were quite happy to travel in an autonomous vehicle at such speeds, compared to just 8% for those over 75 years of age.

What’s more is that, women appeared to be more cautious than men, with just 28% of women saying they would be comfortable versus 40% of men. Another major finding from this survey was that, many of them believe that- Humans are significantly better drivers than machines.
