Would you purchase a self driving car?

    Would you purchase a self driving car?

    Self driving cars will likely improve your commute to work, but what people who enjoy driving?

    No way. I don't want to drive anything that thinks it's better than me at judging traffic. I don't drive automatics, dislike rain sensors on wipers, don't use parking sensors. I want to be in control! There are so many nut jobs on the road, I don't see how a car could recognise what's going on in every situation. Maybe if I'd had a couple of accidents I'd feel differently. I just wonder how an insurance claim form would look...... Err, I'm not sure what happened, I wasn't paying attention. No thanks to self drive cars.

      You are so right.  I have all these automatic things on my truck that are supposed to be for safety, but are wrong more often then not.  They don't see the motorcycle hit it's breaks, but slam on my breaks for the shadow of an overpass.

    I won't even buy an automatic transmission.  I like to do the driving myself and be in control of the vehicle at all times.  I'd go crazy if the car could drive itself.

    It doesn't sound safe to me, so I don't think so.

    No. I would be to paranoid and willed with anxiety that something would go wrong. Unless almost everyone had a self driving car other than me.

    Since a high percentage of accidents are caused by driver error, purchasing a self-driving car would make sense some day in the future.  But we are no doubt many years away from the point where they are safer than cars we drive ourselves.

    Absolutely not. I love to drive as long as it's not in heavy traffic but even then I prefer to be in control of my own vehicle. I highly doubt a self driving car would be willing to jump a curb to avoid getting rear ended like I would.
