CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

We are uncomfortable about driverless cars. 

According to a new study by AAA, 75 percent say they would not feel safe in a self-driving car which is no longer a futuristic idea. 

BI Intelligence estimates that 10 million self-driving cars will be on the road by 2020. 

Companies like Mercedes, BMW, and Tesla have already or will soon self-driving features that give the car some ability to drive itself. 

Google has been test driving driverless cars.  

They have logged more than a million miles without problems, but the self-driving car crashed into a bus in mid-February. 

It’s not the first accident, but it is the first time the self-driving car has been at fault.
