Most people expect driverless cars to become common, and they worry about it

June 4, 2018View for printing

Most Americans think autonomous cars will be quite common within 15 years, though 74 percent of people say they don't expect to have one and two-thirds say they wouldn't want to walk or ride a bicycle anywhere near one.

Confusing? That's in part because the results come from three different recent surveys on Americans' attitudes toward autonomous cars.

Taken together, however, they underscore widespread misgivings about the autonomous vehicles that people expect will be among them shortly, the challenge that automakers face in marketing them, and a need for safety reassurances from federal regulators.
