That last guy. I'd have gone around the block and came back. If he was still in the lane, there would have been a high speed oops. And I don't even own a bike.

Isn't the term "irate cyclist" redundant?

Harsh stop and go traffic? Check. Guarantee rhat autopilot programs will fail on a last second swerve? Check. Pedestrians that will dare you to hit them? Double check.

Yep, they're going with the worst possible idea. No time like the present.

It's been quite a few years, but I've driven in Boston.  I didn't notice it being particularly bad, even in the snow.

Lived in Boston for years. Absolutely no point to owning a car in the city, IMO. Different if you come in from the suburbs, but even then the commuter rail is great. I never understood friends in the city that paid through the nose to park & keep cars they barely ever drove. And when they did drive them in the city it's was always a hassle.

lolwut

I lived in Boston for over 10 years, and while the overall coverage of the public transit there (commuter rail, subway, buses) is pretty damn good, the idea that anything would arrive even remotely on time, either coming or going, was laughable.

Grew up in Boston and lived there for the better part of 40 odd years, and I can safely say that I'm tempted to move back simply to watch the fluster cluck that's gonna happen with self driving cars.

Bets on how long until the car's self driving software bursts into flames? It's going to be almost as much fun as watching someone from out of state try and drive around.

Oh and the T or commuter rail's "schedule" are never taken seriously by anyone from here. They're more suggested times, except for the very last train or bus of the night. Those farkers are smack dab on time.
