Study Suggests Aggressive Drivers and Self-Driving Cars Are Not a Good Combo

Financial Times reports, “Aggressive drivers are looking forward to sharing the road with autonomous cars as they believe they can cut in front of them easily, research suggests. Drivers who are more ‘combative’ tend to ‘see autonomous vehicles as easier agents to deal with on the road’ than humans, because they think they will be able to ‘bully’ them, according to a study by the London School of Economics and Goodyear.” The findings, which come out of a pan-European research project, were presented at a recent ThinkGoodMobility conference in London.
