Half of Cana­di­ans trust self-driv­ing cars: sur­vey

The Western Star - - Canada -

About half of Cana­dian con­sumers sur­veyed say they trust au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles to get them to their des­ti­na­tion but only 30 per cent would re­place their cur­rent ve­hi­cle with a self-driv­ing car.

Not sur­pris­ingly, ac­cep­tance of self-driv­ing tech­nol­ogy was great­est with younger re­spon­dents and those with higher in­comes and ed­u­ca­tion lev­els, says the DesRosiers Au­to­mo­tive Con­sul­tants study.

Que­bec re­spon­dents had the high­est level of trust in au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles, at 56.8 per cent, fol­low­ing by On­tario (51 per cent) and the At­lantic prov­inces (50.1 per cent).

Least likely to trust au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles were re­spon­dents from Man­i­toba and Saskatchewan (45.1 per cent), Al­berta (45.9 per cent) and Bri­tish Columbia (46.1 per cent).
