Other key takeaways from the study include the fact that women are more likely to be afraid of riding in an autonomous vehicle and would feel less safe with them driving on the road.
According to a study out Wednesday from AAA, 63 percent of people are afraid to ride in a self-driving vehicle.
Millennial and male drivers appear to be the least nervous about autonomous vehicle technology.
About 46 percent of survey respondents, for example, said they would feel less safe on the road if they had to share it with a self-driving vehicle.
Only half of the study participants in those groups said they'd be scared to ride in a self-driving vehicle.
Fears about riding in a self-driving vehicles are beginning to wane with millennials leading the way, according to an annual study released Wednesday by American Automobile Association. 37 percent would feel indifferent, the study says, and four percent said they are unsure. While the majority of baby boomers (68 percent) still report being afraid to ride in a self-driving vehicle, this generation is significantly more comfortable with the idea than they were a year ago, when 85 percent reported being afraid. This year, the number was down to 68 percent.
73 percent of drivers in the US consider themselves better than average with their driving abilities. Last year, 85 percent of boomers said they were scared of riding in a auto that drove itself.
As popularity for self-driving cars increases automakers continue to work hard to make them safer and less likely to be hacked. Men, in particular, are confident in their driving skills with 8 in 10 considering their driving skills are better than average, AAA says. That's certainly not the case as AAA notes more than 90 percent of crashes are the result of human error.
