AAA reports the number of people who are too afraid to ride in an autonomous vehicle has risen in recent months to nearly 3 in 4 Americans at 73%. Following high-profile incidents involving autonomous vehicle technologies, this trend of distrust is up significantly from 63 percent in late 2017. Additionally, two-thirds (63 percent) of U.S. adults report they would actually feel less safe sharing the road with a self-driving vehicle while walking or riding a bicycle.

Another surprising finding from this AAA.  It's the younger people who were rattled by these accidents:

"Surprisingly, AAA’s latest survey found that Millennials – the group that has been the quickest to embrace automated vehicle technologies — were the most impacted by these incidents. The percentage of Millennial drivers too afraid to ride in a fully self-driving vehicle has jumped from 49 percent to 64 percent since late 2017, representing the largest increase of any generation surveyed."
