On the Streets in Mcity, a City for Driverless Cars | MIT Technology Review

On the Streets in Mcity, a City for Driverless Cars | MIT Technology Review

A Paragraph to Ponder

From Politico:

"Today, we spend more than five times as many federal dollars on roads as we spend on public transit. We spend more building new road capacity than we spend fixing existing roads. Those priorities affect the competitiveness of our economy, the sustainability of our environment, the livability of our cities, and the mobility of the poor, not to mention the amount of time we spend banging our fists on our steering wheels in traffic and the likelihood that our bridges will collapse. But most of our transportation choices aren’t made in Washington. Congress is mostly a pass-through, funneling cash to states with relatively few strings attached."
