Road Trains?
 
Does this make sense to you?

BBC NEWS | Technology | 'Road trains' get ready to roll


Road trains that link vehicles together using wireless sensors could soon be on European roads.

Makes sense to me but can't see it becoming reality. Maybe they should use the infrastructure we have already and develop a motorail system which is cheap and easy to use.

Great in theory but in practice the technology needs to advance a bit before it could work. Besides how many drivers would want to drive but not drive their cars?

The irony being that at the moment they are celebrating the Berlin Wall coming down. The sheep will realise what's happening and rebel.
