@dankwraith self driving cars will improve wil improve public transit, as the cars will be able to prevent many accidents and help the drivers to keep moving the right way .
@akio_crow no they wont
@akio_crow have you seen edouard siddon's argument for the efficiency of public transit
@dankwraith Not yet, can you link it ?
@akio_crow yeah it's called SIDDON MY DICK AND BALLS
@dankwraith alright, now I understand how childish you are, have a good day
el alcalde tiene razon sobre esto: while i do agree that self-driving vehicles will improve safety and that the technology is more viable than some here might think, it's only a sorry substitute for proper transport infrastructure
density is only the start of the problem, road infrastructure in and of itself is a huge waste of space and is overwhelmingly built by condemning low-income or marginalized neighborhoods etc.
i mean haha suck my train
@akio_crow @dankwraith yep, that's a major improvement but at the point of building tunnels and having a new dedicated fleet of automated vehicles you literally have just built a less efficient subway
like sure cool it's great
but it's just a worse version of the ideal thing that already exists
i love our technocratic overlords as much as the next filthy shill, trust me, and my last convo with dankwraith was actually me defending self-driving vehicles
but they are *not* the ideal
someone else said the thing
this is a legitimate point, but in a dense city environment that doesn't have artificially constrained housing supply (like in many us cities esp. in cali where i live) buildings are generally high-rise with shared garages
thus, transport is still needed to get to a vehicle
transit stations in a city with dense public transit are just as close
@dankwraith BAH GAWD GOT EM QUICKER THAN A SELF-DRIVING CAR MOWING DOWN A PEDESTRIAN
@dankwraith you love to see it
@dankwraith fucking GOT EM
@dankwraith gets em every time
@dankwraith real question though why is it always accounts with little to no followers and no content? Do they just log in to musk at you or what
@caymanwent At least have the courtesy of being a skunk if you're gonna do that
@dankwraith hey dankwraith you're my hero
@dankwraith fucking BRUTAL 👌😩
@dankwraith this is a good way to start the day, yes!
@dankwraith I understand your view, however its a bit too extreme, cars are needed in society way more than u think.
