Thanks to multi-billion-dollar, active-safety-based advancements in automotive technology, the world of self-driving cars is piloting its way to a road near you very soon. General Motors, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Google, Apple and Tesla are all working at laser speeds to move transportation toward autonomous.
 But, according to a recent research report by Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute, Americans don’t want self-driving capability.
 The study’s lead author, Brandon Schoettle, and his team surveyed 505 licensed American drivers aged 18 to mid-60s, and found that the most frequent preference for vehicle automation was no self-driving capability at all.
