Driverless America predicts how the change to automated vehicles will affect many aspects of our lives and the surrounding landscape. The impact will be widespread throughout our diverse population and landscapes. Many impacts will be positive, such as fewer people dying in crashes, disabled people gaining mobility, more affordable housing, better water quality, and lower greenhouse gas emissions. But we may experience downsides such as jobs lost in construction and trucking, abandoned gas stations, fewer organ donations, and more difficult hurricane evacuations. This book is intended to spark discussions that encourages people start thinking ahead to the changes that will occur, hastening the positive ones and acting to mitigate the negative ones.
