Autonomous Vehicles Might Drive Cities to Financial Ruin

Reader Comments

June 20, 2018View for printing

As autonomous vehicles become more common, huge deficits are ahead.

The advent of driverless cars will likely mean that municipalities will have to make do with much, much less.

In the US, most automotive research happens within an hour of that Michigan ballroom, and attendees knew that development of "level 4" autonomous vehicles--designed to operate in limited locations, but without a human driver intervening--is accelerating.

I know it may seem like it's going to take a long time for autonomous cars to come to your community but it may be much sooner than you think.

Your community and state may want to start considering the implications of this life changing development (I don't think I'll ever have to buy another car) on the built environment and how we'll live our future lives.

The end of "carcatecture" is coming.
