    "Vehicles with zero emissions"

    Honey, unless the power plant supplying your electric car with electricity runs on renewable resources (almost none of them do, they use coal), there's no such thing as "zero emissions." It's time we quit putting the cart before the horse, and started fixing the problem of power generation. Once that's taken care of, go ahead, turn up your nose at us plebs who can't afford teslas.

    Moving to Iowa is a sure-fire way to avoid traffic jams.

    If all cars were automated and in sync there would be no traffic

    Toyota as a leader in car technology? How about Tesla?

    The irony of the Toyota sponsorship. It's usually the automobile lobby that blocks improvements to public transport.

    There is a stretch of freeway that I always take every morning. There are no interchanges or even on ramps. Just a long stretch. But every morning it just suddenly stalls to a halt… in the fast lane. Every time. There are no cars merging in. There is no bottleneck. But it happens without fail every time. I think what is happening is that once the freeway opens up to this stretch everyone zooms ahead and then 1/3 of the way through they all bunch up and end up at a stand still.

    Private vehicles suck

    Drive slower? Wouldn't that make impatient drivers even more irritated? :p

    Or you can just take the train.

    This would be nice, but Norway is full of Teslas that are always tailgating. So if that buffer zone should be equal both front and back, that means I would have to tailgate as well.

    Which I do anyways because I'm a BMW driver, and know that I am superior to anyone else on the road.

    Does anybody else have yellow routes or is that just my part of Dallas Texas if you live in Dallas and don't know about these that's because it's a big secret and not many people know about them I know they have them in saint louis and Branson Missouri.

    White car at 0:40 is a jerk.

    That was a very weird way of saying "autonomous". Not a criticism, just a observation.

    Instead of the 401, take the 407
