A recent AAA survey found that woman are less enthusiastic about the prospect of driverless cars than men. 

The survey said that a significantly higher percentage of women (79%) than men (62%) said they were fearful of being in a driverless car.

The Washington Times reports that researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) AgeLab recently found 30% of men and 14.3% of women said they would feel comfortable riding in a fully self-driving vehicle.

The MIT researchers also found that 53% of women said they would prefer a ‘help driver’ or backup safety personnel in an autonomous car, compared to 32% of men, according to The Washington Times.
