Americans are warming to self-driving cars
Self-driving cars are coming, and Americans are getting on board. That's a conclusion of a new study from the University of Michigan.
56-percent of Americans surveyed had positive opinions of self-driving vehicles. 29-percent hadn't heard of it before the study, yet it's not far from becoming reality.
Those surveyed said self-driving cars were likely to yield a variety of benefits, including fewer crashes, decreased emissions and lower insurance rates, but most were still hesitant about getting in one, for now.
11-percent said they wouldn't be concerned about riding in a self-driving vehicle.
