InfoShot: What the Brits really think of driverless cars

The UK government wants to lead the way in developing autonomous vehicles and thanks to £19m  funding, it will begin testing driverless cars in four British cities.

“Driverless cars are the future. I want Britain to be at the forefront of this exciting new development, to embrace a technology that could transform our roads and open up a brand new route for global investment,” said Transport Minister Claire Perry on the news.

The UK government is very optimistic about the prospect of driverless cars on UK roads, but what do the British public think? Do they feel comfortable relinquishing control to a robot?
