77 percent of drivers do not trust these cars

As much as 77 percent do not trust self-driving cars in traffic, shows a new survey. The number has even increased significantly since February.

Back in January, a survey by the data company Arity showed that 34 percent of motorists believe that self-driving cars are best for road safety. At least in the short run.

But when the survey was carried out again in June, the proportion of motorists who voted positively towards the self-driving cars had fallen. And even quite significantly to just 23 percent.

In other words, a whopping 77 percent of drivers do not trust the technology in self-driving cars. Not even if there are more and more of them.

The self-driving cars, that is. At the same time, however, 86 percent of the 1,000 motorists surveyed say that they would be willing to share data about their traffic jam with others if it could save lives in return.

However, Arity also points out that drivers' behavior behind the wheel has gotten worse in recent years. Since the corona pandemic, distracted driving has increased by 32 percent. And you don't necessarily just have to take the word of a surveyor for that.

A new type of speed camera, which uses artificial intelligence to catch people with bad habits behind the wheel, has flashed 100 drivers every single day during a trial period. Read more about it here .

Despite the opposition to self-driving cars, drivers respond in other surveys that they prefer to be monitored for how fast they drive. In fact, 60 percent of drivers say they want so-called 'intelligent cruise control' in new cars.

The system has already become a reality at home and in the rest of the EU. From 7 July this year, it – and other safety systems – cannot be switched off at all in new cars. Read more about it here .
