Bicyclists Could Prevent Netherlands Becoming #1 Nation For Driverless Cars, Says KPMG Report

KPMG’s second Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index was published on Monday and it rates the Netherlands as the country most ready for the adoption of driverless cars. But there’s a fly in the ointment. In fact, millions of them: cyclists.

In the report, KPMG’s digital advisory manger for automotive Stijn de Groen was blunt: “We have a lot of bicycles.”

He added: “In urban, crowded areas it will be very difficult to start autonomous driving.”
