Standard

According to a recent ongoing survey conducted by Volvo, “nine out of ten New Yorkers and 86% of residents in California feel that autonomous cars could make life easier.”Comparatively, 62% of Pennsylvanians feel more autonomous cars on the road will eliminate traffic accidents. And only a small majority of Texans — 60% — believe autonomous cars could keep their family safer.Illinois residents are even more skeptical. Only 52% of Illinoisan would trust a self-driving car to make safe driving decisions. Volvo is in the midst of hosting the Future of Driving Survey, which it calls the largest “conversation about autonomous driving to date.” In fact, nearly 50,000 people have responded to Volvo’s questions about self-driving cars so far.While its data shows Americans differ in their eagerness for and trust of autonomous cars, 90% of them agree that government agencies and local authorities are slow to respond to or plan for self-driving cars.
