According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, two-thirds of Americans are uncomfortable about the idea of riding in a self-driving car.

“While 27 percent of respondents said they would feel comfortable riding a self-driving car, poll data indicated that most people were far more trusting of humans than robots and artificial intelligence under a variety of scenarios,” Reuters reports.

The poll also revealed a noticeable difference of opinion by gender and age, with men being more comfortable than women about using self-driving vehicles.
