Poll: Computer cars turned down
'NO, THANK YOU': A recent poll has shown not all drivers are keen to try their hand at a self-driving car like the Google car.
A self-driving car may have been granted a permit to take to the roads in Nevada, US, but a poll of drivers across "the pond" has shown UK road-users would be less than keen to take up that offer.
Nearly 2000 website users were polled by a leading UK car sales group and although 42% of respondents said they would be happy to sit back and let the car do
the work, 58% admitted they were not ready to hand over the
steering wheel to computer in a self-driving car such as the Google Prius.
'THRILL OF THE DRIVE'
David Shelton, managing director of Motorpoint, said: “There is more technology in today’s cars than ever before but it seems people still love the thrill of the drive.”
If self-driving technology were to be introduced in South Africa, would you be willing to relinquish control of your steering wheel? Tell us in the Readers' Comments section below
