Americans increasingly skeptical about self-drive

Americans want more self-driving technology – but at the same time, they are also more skeptical about self-drive, says the U.S. Tech Choice Study, an annual survey by J.D. Power. 
Compared to a year ago, trust in self-drive technology has declined in all age groups surveyed, except those born between 1977 and 1994. 
Respondents from the so-called “Generation Z” (those born between 1995 and 2004) who said they definitely would not trust self-driving technology rose from 11% to 22% in a year’s time. An additional 23% said they probably would not trust the technology.
The share of Baby-Boomers (i.e. those born shortly after World War II) who definitely or probably would not trust self-drive, rose from 77% to 81%. According to the study, 40% of Baby-Boomers see no benefits to self-drive, with nearly half listing possible technology failures or errors as a major concern.
