Washington, D.C- Nothing worst than having a minivan with a "baby on board" sticker occupying the fast lane on 495N. When autonomous cars took over the streets most humans thought that it would allow for a smooth flow of traffic. Unfortunately, autonomous minivans still occupy the fast lane and slow down traffic.
Scientist and robot engineers somehow still programmed autonomous minivans to occupy the fast lane during rush hour traffic. "We didn't want minivan owners to lose the feeling of driving a minivan, and we still wanted people to hate minivans forever," engineers from a auto manufacturer told Robot and Rider.
Robot and Rider spoke to a minivan owner, "I just love the boxy shape, and agility of my minivan. I'm just glad that Toyota still makes the Prius, so minivans aren't the most hated car on the road."
Autonomous Cars Stuck At A Four-Way Stop In Portland, None Of The Cars Want To Hurt The Others Feelings
Portland, Oregon- Robot and Rider was alerted of a four-hour delay at an intersection in Portland, Oregon because four autonomous cars were at a complete standstill. No car wanted to make the first move, the autonomous cars didn't want to upset the other cars by making the first move.
Eventually, the one of the autonomous cars made a move and went straight through the intersection a bystander tells Robot and Rider. Once the autonomous car made the first move, the other cars reacted passive agressively by honking their horns at the car that made the first move. The other cars then decided it was their turn and all turned at the same time, resulting in a three car crash.
The intersection in Portland is finally clear, and no one was late to clown school.
Reno, Nevada- The porn industry had sited 2056 as its best year in traffic hits, and this has been a 20 year streak for the porn industry. Ever since commuters have had more time "on their hands," commuters have turned to watching porn while driving.
Wives even report that their husbands now actually look forward to their commute. Long gone are the days, of men dreading their two hour commute to work.
Robot and Rider spoke to Sally of Washington, DC, "I've never seen my husband so excited to head into work in the morning. He bounces right out of bed and doesn't complain one bit."
This is a common story across America that Robot and Rider has been hearing recently. Now that cars have hands-free driving capabilities, commuters have taken to different activities to occupy their time....or hands.
