My big idea for cities in 2012: Cities with Shared Pod Car Systems

Pod Cars are automated driverless vehicles that will operate on traditional roadways creating personal rapid transit systems”
* use contributes to carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbon emissions

* are expensive and if not shared typically are parked for most of there lifetime

* uses of cars are for 1-2 people transports

* have the technical capability to have small, energy efficient cars

* some cases cars with automated drivers are safer than humans

* automated shared car system would reduce emissions, decrease grid lock in cities, increase safety, enable faster personalized public transit options, and better utilize vehicles
