Almost two thirds of motorists would buy a self-driving car, according to a new poll by Motorpoint.
Its online survey of more than 1,350 people found that 59.1% would purchase a car that can drive itself.
A number of car manufacturers are already looking at how they can expand the current self-driving capabilities available such as adaptive cruise control and assisted parking to make autonomous driving cars a reality within the next few years.
BMW, Mercedes, Volvo and Google are all trialing models at the moment.
Managing director of Motorpoint Mark Carpenter (pictured) said: “It is clear from all the reports coming out of car manufacturers that it is only a matter of time before we see cars on UK roads that not only drive themselves but park themselves – something which motorists clearly welcome based on the results of our poll.
“Although there are still issues to address, such as who pays if the system fails and you have a crash, driving and the cars we drive are going to change like never before in the next few years thanks to advent of exciting new technological advances.”
