The Computer-Controlled Driving Experience Is About More Than Just Self-Driving Cars | Co.Exist | ideas + impact

If you were to design a transport system to use as much energy as possible, with the greatest possible impact on the environment, you’d design a system something like the one we have now. You’d give everyone their own car, subsidize gasoline to the tune of billions of dollars a year, and allow everyone to drive everywhere for the same cost, irrespective of traffic conditions or air quality. Today, the United States uses 170 billion gallons of fuel to go a total of three trillion miles a year. The result is gridlock in many places and massive carbon emissions.

One day we may all drive around in electric cars powered from renewable energy sources. But even that wouldn’t help as much as you might think. It would cut pollution, sure. But if we organized traffic systems the way we do now, we’d still have traffic congestion and high blood pressure.
