UK against robocars

Thursday, July 30, 2015


Despite moves towards autonomous cars, three-quarters of the UK do not want driverless cars. 

A survey by OSV Ltd showed that 75% of the UK population did not want robocars with the English most against, with 82% stating that they did not want one.

People from Scotland were slightly more keen than other countries in the UK with 26% admitting they would want a driverless car.

Men were more drawn to driverless cars than women, with 30% of those surveyed stating that they would like one. Females were less likely to want an autonomous car with only 19% sharing that same desire.

The survey found that 43% of 18-25 year olds would want to buy an autonomous car. On the other end of the spectrum only 10% of 55-64 year olds shared that same interest. Surprisingly, that figure rose to 27% for the over 65’s, showing that the youngest and eldest age groups are the most interested in the driverless car revolution.
