An Accident Waiting to Happen? | The Antiplanner
Light rail gets you from where it is to where it goes to while only killing 16 people per billion passenger miles.
More beyond the break.
Automobiles gets you from where you are to where you want to go while only killing 5 people per billion passenger miles.
The self drive automobile gets you from where you are to where you want to be while only killing 0.5 people per billion passenger miles.
Unluckily, urban and transit planners want to require you ride light rail.
I am going out on a limb and saying you might want to leave the urban and traffic planners to their 19th century bromance with light rail, while you move smartly into the safer, more convenient, and luxurious 21st century, and its self drive automobile.
