Love isn’t in the air for these UK drivers
A poll timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day last week has found that while UK motorists may love their partners, not all of them are so enamoured by their other half’s driving skills.
According to the survey, one in six men (17%) would already trust an automated car over their partner’s driving. Among the women questioned, 13% said they would feel safer being driven by an automated car than by their partner.
“While over-confidence behind the wheel may never go away, it’s surprising that one in six men already have confidence in the technology and say they’d feel safer in the car without a person in control – despite probably not having yet experienced driverless technology.”
Paul Brown, Managing Director of Cars on Demand, which commissioned the poll.
