Just trying to imagine if this would work in the UK. Short answer: it wouldn't. It would resign every single artic to the inside lane, single file, for the duration of the journey. Might work with the natives, but the thousands of EU drivers who pop over daily aren't known for their patience. Those overhead cables look like they're designed to be driven under from a higher feed pole, and then you stay there. No swapping to the middle lane and then trying to cut back in. Remember, everyone else on the road is an idiot, so expect them to do stupid things

beezeltown: It would work great. As long as the truck has diesel backup, which runs constantly and supplies power.

But think about it: it would be a chance to spend a trillion dollars on highway infrastructure that ends up not being used. Congresscritters should be scrambling for it.


If the only net benefit is that it keeps all trucks in the right lane, I am all for spending trillions.

been on this tip fro day one for electric cars.

Do you understand how much energy is wasted, moving a pile of longer haul batteries around, in the fooking city 80+% of the time?

The vast majority of electric cars, should be for in city only use, running directly off the main,s and not eating up fuel to move batteries around the city.
With the VAST MAJORITY of personal cars only having enough battery to run about 80-100 miles max.
And so a lot a lot less weight, translating to much improve fuel economy.


Oh look, because we are not literally burning fuel in our tanks, the fook you forgot fuel economy still matters.
Stupid narrow minded assholes.
