THE NUMBERS REPORT

trendsFifty-seven percent of respondents in a worldwide Cisco survey said they would trust driverless cars to get them to their destination safely.

The results were stronger in some countries: 97 percent of Brazilians, 86 percent of Chinese and 70 percent of Indians thought this would make driving safer (they know their roads better than we do). In the U.S., 60 percent thought it would be safe. The Germans were skeptical –only 37 percent thought it would be a good thing. (They like to floor it on the Autobahn.) The Japanese were the most skeptical about the value of driverless cars, only 28 percent liked it. (Very dense traffic in Japan).
