AAA Study Finds Many Consumers Don’t Trust Self-Driving Vehicles
A new AAA survey has found that American consumers remain skeptical when it comes to driverless vehicles, but would prefer better automatic performance features in existing models.
“You can’t sell consumers on the future if they don’t trust the present,” said Greg Brannon, director of AAA’s automotive engineering in a statement regarding the survey.
“And drivers tell us they expect their current driving-assistance technology to perform safely all the time. But unfortunately our testing demonstrates spotty performance is the norm rather than the exception.”
The survey found inconsistent performance is a crucial concern with available driving-assistance systems, resulting in crashes with a car and a bicyclist in tests.
