92m 'connected cars' in US by 2019?

New research from Parks Associates forecasts that one in three light vehicles on American roads will be able to connect to the internet and to other road-users before the decade's end.

The report examines the benefits of both smarter cars and smarter homes, but also highlights consumer concerns about the growing pace of technological advancement.

In particular, US drivers are worried about the financial burden - who will foot the bill for their cars' increased connectivity?

Two thirds of consumers say that they're concerned about hidden costs relating to the technology.

Interestingly, it is the highest-ranking concern, ranking above privacy fears and those of a greater risk of crashing caused by greater driver distraction.
