75% of UK population say they don’t want driverless cars
The OSV survey also found that people from England are even more against driverless cars with 82% saying they wouldn’t want one – this compares to 74% of people from Scotland.
Interestingly, men are more drawn to driverless cars than women, with 30% of those surveyed stating that they would like one, compared to 19% of women.
Younger drivers are also more interested in the technology, with 43% of 18-25 year olds saying they would want to buy an autonomous car. On the other end of the spectrum only 10% of 55-64 year olds shared that same interest. Surprisingly, that figure rose to 27% for the over 65’s, showing that the youngest and eldest age groups are the most interested in the driverless car revolution.
