No less than 44 percent of the Dutch never want to get into a self-driving car. This is apparent from research by MisterGreen among 1091 Dutch people with a driving license, conducted by Panelwizard. Safety seems to be the most important explanation for this. For example, more than four in ten respondents think that full self-driving (FSD) cars are more often responsible for accidents than human drivers.
Women in particular are reluctant to use self-driving cars. For example, 53 percent of them never want to get into such a vehicle and half are convinced that they cause more accidents than when there is a person behind the wheel. Among male respondents, these percentages are 35 and 34 percent.
Besides safety, fear of the unknown seems to be an important reason why many Dutch people prefer not to get into a self-driving car. For example, the survey shows that no fewer than three quarters of the respondents find it scary when the car takes over full control. This may be because 77 percent do not know exactly what self-driving cars can do these days. Even now, it is mainly women who are afraid of handing over the wheel (84 percent) and who are insufficiently aware of FSD technology (86 percent).
