Carmageddon is Coming
Angus Hervey

Lots of interesting facts, here, but the speculation is a bit sketchy for me. People used to say that with the advent of the frozen dinner, people would stop cooking, but they failed to recognize how much people love to cook, and to eat freshly cooked food. Likewise, I think people love driving their own cars too much to switch over so quickly based just on favorable economics. Plus, you have businesses like construction companies that need their own specialized vehicles, people who love road trips, and technophobes who aren’t accounted for.

Finally, why would taxpayers be upset? Why would we need any fewer roads with ride sharing than we do now?

Still, fascinating piece and I’m sure there will be big changes. Let’s just hope we don’t get hit with a massive solar storm, which would destroy all this great new technology...

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
