Driverless Traffic

This would be very hard to get used to!

Via Andrew Sullivan)Driverless Traffic:

What intersections would look like in a world dominated by driverless cars:

Emily Badger captions:
Right now, you may wind up sitting at a red light for 45 seconds even though no one is passing through the green light in the opposite direction. But you don’t have to do that in a world where traffic flows according to computer communication instead of the systems that have been built with human behavior in mind. ... Because of this, we won’t need traffic lights at all (or stop signs, for that matter). Traffic will constantly flow, and at a rate that would probably unnerve the average human driver.
