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.

Re: Road Trains?

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?
