During the last decades, road accidents have become one of the leading death causes, especially for youths (WHO, 2017; Adminaite et al., 2018). Technology is working on its and is providing solutions to reduce the risk of accidents and road victims (Kyriakidis et al., 2015; Peden et al., 2016). Driverless cars are a decisive factor in reducing road accidents in the future (Rowley et al., 2018; bertoncello & Wee, 2015; La Torre et al., 2017; Fowle & Loeb, 2018; Dia, 2018). Safety, confidence, privacy, reliability and responsability are the most important factors that are considered before buying or driving this type of car (Becker & Axhausen, 2017; Nordhoff et al., 2018). These factors are fundamental in case of adoption of driverless vehicles for Police activity (Al Suwadi et al., 2018; Al Shouk, 2018).
