Access to mobility is necessary but owning a vehicle is not, according to 39 percent of respondents, which represents a 4-percentage point increase over 2015 results. For urban consumers, 57 percent indicate access to mobility is more important than vehicle ownership, a 13-point increase since 2015.

Humans must take active role in self-driving safety, report says
