Self-driving car experiment shows significantly reduced traffic

    Not only this, but in the future I can see insurance companies offer much better insurance rates for people that let their car drive itself (autonomously​). Whereas people who want to still drive their own vehicles will pay a higher premium. As time goes on, it will become to costly for people to drive yourself around manually. Mark my words.

    Yes and lane splitting capable thin EVs will also dramatically improve traffic throughput and improve air quality.

    The title is incorrect, or at least incomplete. Traffic wasn’t reduced, traffic congestion was.

    Similarly, the lead sentence “self-driving cars may lead to significantly reduced traffic flow” probably should have been “significantly improved traffic flow.” If anything, this would probably increase traffic, just like a new highway increases traffic while reducing congestion.

    Traffic reductions due to people not wanting to be seen in such a hideous car. do they come up with these designs on purpose?
