Lanes for driver-less cars in the works



Lanes for driver-less cars in the works
A new lane type might make room for cars with no drivers, starting with a highway from Vancouver to Seattle in the United States.
That’s the new idea from several tech giants, including a board member of Amazon and a former Microsoft executive.
The lane would initially be a shared HOV one, but eventually would be moved to driverless only.
Of course driverless cars are designed to interact safely with normal traffic, but a special lane would technically mean safer, and far more efficient travel, for anyone with autonomous controls.
The chief benefit of this would be saving money by dodging another public transportation initiative: high speed rails.
