Shipping should be done by rail, these giant trucks shouldn't be on the road, except when going to construction type projects, or small deliveries.
Our current transportation structure is supposed to be more versatile, but mainly it creates sprawl, and is an obstacle to efficiency. The system in
place in the U.S. is designed for one thing, generate revenue for the oil companies, car companies, banks, insurance companies, and local
governments in the form of traffic tickets, not to mention an easy excuse to eliminate our rights. Under current laws, when you drive on the road,
you have surrendered your rights, and forget about a fair trial, it doesn't exist.
We could do far, far better. Just think, with a rail or tube system where people put their private vehicles on computer controlled system where many
aspects of driving were computer controlled, the need for traffic fines and traffic stops by the police would be virtually eliminated.
