Hands free driving

Having recently spent an evening and a good part of the following night driving on our overstretched motorway and A road system (30 miles of motorway closed necessitating a 70 mile nose to tail detour), I am ready to consider alternatives. Whilst searching online for something else, I came across an essay entitled End of Traffic Jams: A Transportation System for the Future, which is concerned with dualmode and automated highway systems. Whilst little more than an overview, this essay points the way towards a possuble solution to combining the freedom of personal transport with the speed, ease of use and safety of a mass transit system. However, a wander through the various ongoing projects linked at the bottom of the page shows that these types of initiaives are not just pipe dreams.
