'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.

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.


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.”
