ABSTRACT. Despite the relevance of the social ethics of self-driving cars, only limited research has been conducted on this topic. Using and replicating data from AAA, ANSYS, Atomik Research, AUVSI, Capgemini, McKinsey, Perkins Coie, Pew Research Center, Schoettle & Sivak (2014), Statista, and YouGov, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding public perceptions and predictions of autonomous vehicle safety risks. The results of a study based on data collected from 4,500 respondents provide support for my research model. Using the structural equation modeling, I gathered and analyzed data through a self-administrated questionnaire.
