Poll reveals Americans' thoughts on self-driving cars

By Matt Hoffman, Veuer

Would you ride in a self-driving car? Odds are, your answer is no.

That's according to a new poll from AAA. They found 78 percent of Americans fear the idea, while 54 percent are also afraid of having self-driving cars on the road at all.

But it's not all bad news for the industry -- 61 percent of those surveyed were interested in at least one autonomous feature, such as automatic emergency brakes or self-parking.

Autonomous vehicle concepts are being pursued by many companies across different industries, including Uber, Google and Volkswagen.
