Technology is often accused of making us lazy and of taking away our abilities to do what we once did manually. General consensus is that most improve our lives by making things easier or by automating mundane tasks, but sometimes it goes further than many are willing to accept.

Power and Associates brought to us by Shreveport Chevrolet, we find that young Americans are much more willing to get behind the wheel of autonomous cars than older Americans. The older one is, in fact, the less likely they are to allow cars to do anything for them, from speed control to accident avoidance braking assist. It’s a matter of trust, and apparently American youths are more trusting.
