Similar to the classic problem of which comes first, the chicken or the egg, vehicles are designed to fit available highways; highways are designed to fit available vehicles, and both must consider the capabilities and limitations of the driver. Discussed in this paper will be certain aspects of the vehicle-highway/chicken-egg problem. Included will be (a) recently completed research that has or may impact upon vehicle design, (b) ongoing and planned highway research with vehicle implications, and (c) other considerations and uncertainties of the future that may impact upon both highways and vehicles.
