More Americans Warming Up To Self-Driving Cars

-
Self-driving cars are coming, and Americans are getting on board.

That's a conclusion of a new study from the University of Michigan.

56-percent of Americans surveyed had positive opinions of self-driving vehicles.

29-percent hadn't heard of it before the study -- yet it's not far from becoming reality.

Those surveyed said self-driving cars were likely to yield a variety of benefits, including fewer crashes, decreased emissions and lower insurance rates.

But most were still hesitant about getting in one, for now.

11-percent said they wouldn't be concerned about riding in a self-driving vehicle.
