The Trust In America’s Driverless Car Future, Visualized

Pew recently shed more light on their survey and shared the difference of opinion between Americans over 50 and younger Americans about driverless cars…

Key Takeaways

Almost every third American adult is still uncertain about the impact that driverless passenger vehicles will have on society.

Nineteen percent of American adults aged 50 and up think driverless passenger vehicles will be good for society, whereas among the younger cohort, aged 18-49, that number jumps to 33 percent.

Younger Americans are more convinced than their older neighbors that the number of traffic fatalities and injuries will go down when driverless passenger vehicles become mainstream.

Older people seem to be more lenient about having 18-wheeler autonomous trucks and are a little bit more opposed to the idea of driverless delivery vehicles.
