There’s no doubt about it – driverless cars are the wave of the future and are on their way. Major car companies are all pushing forward with these innovations, though these innovations are still drawing up some controversy.

Even with the excitement of driverless cars varying across the board, some states are beginning to get more on board with the idea than other. In a study conducted by Volvo to assess the Future of Driving, the differences of attitudes varying by state and family history were found. In the survey itself, it was found that “nine out of ten New Yorkers and 86 percent of residents in California feel that autonomous cars could make life easier.” It was also found that “62 percent of Pennsylvanians feel driverless cars on the road will eliminate traffic accidents” and 60 percent of Texans felt that driverless cars would be safer for their families.

State variance isn’t the only difference found when it comes to how people across the country felt about driverless cars. Here’s what those surveyed really thought about driverless cars and the role they will play in driving in the future.

Though technology is moving us fast and headfirst into the future, innovations like this often come with a set of concerns and controversies… for good reason. Users’ concerns now should be taken into consideration as driverless cars continue to be developed, in order to develop driverless cars that users will feel good about utilizing and purchasing.
