ELON MUSK PLANS ON KILLING TRAFFIC WITH A NEW UNDERGROUND SUPER HIGHWAY. 👏🏽💯
In America the average life expectancy of a man is about 78 years and according to slate.com it’s estimated that he will spend between 3 to 6 months of his 78 year life span just sitting traffic.
It’s something we can’t avoid or fight, unless you’re a billionaire futurist called Elon musk who claims to have the solution in the form of “Traffic killing Tunnels”.
In Elon Musk’s fantastic vision of the future, cars will drive themselves when they aren’t being whisked through the vast networks of tunnels he envisions beneath the world’s cities.
Musk, who started digging a big hole on the SpaceX campus near Los Angeles earlier this year, proposes using these underground roadways as a new kind of highway system. As the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla tells it, the cars of tomorrow will reach these tunnels from street-level elevators dotted around the city. Rather than navigate these tunnels under their own power, they would ride on electric trolleys not unlike slot cars, at speeds reaching 200 km/h.
Musk says such a system would whisk you from LA’s Westwood neighbourhood to Los Angeles International Airport in just 5 minutes. Typically a 16 km drive that typically requires a 30 to 60-minute delay because of-you guessed it, Traffic.
