Americans Remain Fearful of Self-Driving Vehicles

The Washington (DC) Post reports two surveys recently released show that Americans remain concerned about the safety of self-driving vehicles. One survey released by the Brookings Institution “found that 61 percent of Americans said they were not inclined to ride in self-driving cars,” while a poll conducted by Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety “found that 69 percent of those surveyed said they were concerned about sharing the road with autonomous cars.” A June poll by HNTB found that 59 percent of those surveyed do not expect self-driving vehicles to be safer than human drivers. The Post contrasts these concerns by citing statistics showing that 94 percent of car crashes are caused by human error. The Post mentions that the AV START Act could be added to the Senate version of the “must-pass” FAA Reauthorization bill, which could circumvent the Democrats who have attempted to block the legislation.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
