71 Percent of Americans Still Don’t Trust Autonomous Cars According to New Survey

Most Americans are terrified of riding in autonomous vehicles, according to a new survey released by AAA. And rather than getting more comfortable with the futuristic technology, people are becoming more afraid.

According to the new survey, a whopping 71 percent of Americans say that they’re afraid to ride in a self-driving car, up from 63 percent who said the same thing in late 2017. AAA speculates that there’s a very obvious reason why the fear of self-driving cars may be going up: Autonomous vehicle technology is starting to kill people.
