    By 2030, people will commonly arrive at a place they are going to spend several hours or more, and if htye are local, they will simply send their cars home and then call for them to pick them up just before they are ready to leave.

    People will do much of their work while driving to work and get paid for it, traffic fines will dry up as a source of city, county and state revenue, and traffic accident deaths will become rare and surprising.

    Cool stuff.
