ORLANDO, Fla. -– A new report from AAA reveals most U.S. drivers seek autonomous technologies in their next vehicle, but they fear the fully self-driving car.

Despite the prospect that driverless cars will be safer, more efficient and more convenient than their human-driven counterparts, three-quarters of U.S. drivers report feeling afraid to ride in a self-driving car, and only 10% report they’d feel safer sharing the roads with driverless vehicles.
