SOME PUNDIT SAID SOMETHING ABOUT HOW DRIVERLESS CARS WON’T SOLVE ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS; I DON’T CARE, HURRY UP ALREADY
I saw the headline that said according to some pundit, driverless cars won’t reduce traffic congestion, but I didn’t bother to read it. I don’t think driverless cars will succeed because they will reduce congestion. I think driverless cars will succeed because of the increased autonomy they will provide. As long as they don’t make congestion worse, that aspect is irrelevant to me.
I have the feeling that most people aren’t interested in urban planning. For some reason I have always thought it is interesting, probably because in general, I am interested in how things work. If my feeling that most people aren’t interested in urban planning is accurate, then most of you probably won’t bother to read this post at The Antiplanner blog about an “urban planning guru” (I didn’t know there was such a person). He’s the pundit that I mentioned at the beginning of this post. I have no idea whether he’s right or not, or whether or not he really qualifies as a guru. I do think that people who advocate solutions to “first world problems,” like “urban sprawl,” are tilting at windmills.
