You know on the surface you might think why would I ever  and yet... older drivers, people who have trouble seeing at night, folks who are legally blind, people with a long boring commute and the list really goes on and on.  Now that said, it may not seem so strange that one in five drivers say that they would hand over the keys tomorrow if a safe, computer-operated vehicle were available. 90 percent would at least consider a self-driving car if cheaper insurance were part of the package.

Most experts believe that completely driverless vehicles will eventually roam the streets, shuttling us around with almost zero human input. And drivers are looking forward to making better use of that commute. Asked what they will do with newly freed time, drivers chose:

  • Text/talk with friends: 26 percent
  • Read: 21 percent
  • Sleep: 10 percent
  • Watch movies: 8 percent
  • Play games: 7 percent
  • Work: 7 percent
