Driverless cars could change urban landscape – Chicago Tribune

Posted: Saturday, February 18, 2017

The scenes are straight out of a Jules Verne novel or the 1960s cult cartoon “The Jetsons.”

Driverless cars streak down the Stevenson Expressway, traveling in platoons for reduced wind resistance, while old-fashioned cars (the kind with people at the wheel) are consigned to a 65 mph slow lane.

Glassy passenger pods float above a Manhattan street, which has been transformed from an anonymous stretch of asphalt into a welcoming swath of trees, grasses and walking paths.

Idle speculation? No.
