Public Perceptions of Driverless Cars Survey Report

With the current race to develop driverless car technologies, the next administration might be the first one to see driverless cars parking themselves on Pennsylvania Avenue. State Farm underwrote a Bloomberg Government survey of 1,000 Americans to better understand the general population’s perspectives and perceptions of driverless cars and their use.

Key takeaways include:

— Consumers are intrigued, but also a little wary of autonomous/self-driving vehicles

— Attitudes about autonomous vehicles vary by age, gender and education

— Time spent riding or driving can also be related to interest in autonomous vehicles

— Seeing an autonomous/self-driving vehicle first hand could appease many concerns
