Well Played, China: Buses So Big Cars Can Go Under Them
Grist marvels at this interesting idea. Personally, I think it's pretty foolish until we have driverless cars, but when that happens, let's do it!
You know when you’re driving and there’s a bus in front of you and it’s annoying as hell, partly because buses are annoying, and mostly because we are impatient assholes? Well, the Chinese are developing a solution for this problem: super tall buses you can drive under.
Yes, it sounds too good to be true, but as we speak, Chinese transportation geniuses in Beijing are in the process of constructing buses that run along a track about 16 feet off the ground, and the cars go underneath them.
