Pittsburgh residents don’t fear driverless vehicles, survey says

The findings stand in stark contrast to most public opinion polls, which consistently find American drivers are leery of vehicles steered by artificial intelligence.

For example, a Gallup poll last year found 62 percent of drivers would not be uncomfortable sharing the road with self-driving trucks. And an international study by TÜV Rheinland, also last year, examined Chinese, German and American attitudes and found only a third of U.S. drivers believe driverless cars will increase road safety.
