City Traffic Stress Cure: Are Self-Driving Cars and Congestion Pricing Just Treating Symptoms?
May 2, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Life is too short to wait in traffic” (Biker patch). Per the NY Times (03/08/17),“Self-Driving Cars Can’t Cure Traffic, but Economics Can.” We agree on self-driving benefits: safety, convenience, cost and time savings, mobility. But are proposed economic solutions only treating the symptoms of a traditionally accepted business environment where business hours create rush hour traffic? The experts speak. Heather Ashton, IDC: “Traffic congestion is caused by vehicles, not by people in themselves” (Jane Jacobs). Joe Burton, Whil: “If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the 'right' thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It's like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip” (Robert Kiyosaki). Larry Stolle, SAP: “The car was invented as a convenient place to sit out traffic jams!” (Evan Esar).
