The psychology behind Trump’s fear of self-driving cars

Vox - 03-20


President Donald Trump thinks self-driving cars are “crazy” and “will never work,” according to four sources quoted by Axios this week. The sources, who reportedly had heard him privately discussing the new technology, recalled him slamming it on more than one occasion: “I would never get in a self-driving car.” “I don’t trust some computer to drive me around.” “Can you imagine, you’re sitting in the backseat and all of a sudden this car is zigzagging around the corner and you can’t stop the f---ing thing?”
