A poll by Motorpoint has shown that UK Motorists would not be comfortable with using a self-driving car such as the Google car.
The car supermarket polled nearly 2,000 of their website users and found that 58% were not keen on letting a computer take the wheel. This survey comes in the wake of Nevada granting the Google self-driving car its first permit.
With California expected to follow Nevada in granting the car permission to take to public roads we may soon see similar technology in Britain, so Motorpoint asked if UK motorists would welcome a sentient car taking them for a spin.
David Shelton, Motorpoint managing director said; “In today’s cars, there is more technology than ever before such as our Ford Focus Titanium X’s which have a self-park feature fitted as standard. However, it seems that people still love the thrill of the drive, and in this sunny weather there isn’t much that beats a winding country road.”
