There are approximately 10 million people residing in Los Angeles County. Those who are licensed to drive (and many who are not licensed but still drive) know that during certain times and in certain areas of Los Angeles, traffic can be absolutely horrendous.
That’s why (SpaceX founder) Elon Musk, through his company “The Boring Company,” is starting to dig underground in hopes of building an underground tunnel system for vehicles to bypass all of the traffic, as reported by Forbes.
There are over 4 million traffic tickets issued in California every year. The Los Angeles County Superior Court reports getting 1.5 million visitors, per month!
Imagine a world where Los Angeles traffic tickets are a thing of the past, because your vehicle travels mostly underground on an automatic sled traveling at a high rate of speed, bypassing all of the traffic above.
Elon Musk envisions underground high speed tunnels connecting high density communities, including a tunnel from Los Angeles to San Francisco and from New York to Washington, D.C.
Why is the Boring Company Making Tunnels Underground Instead of Flying Cars?
The Boring Company explains on its website why tunneling underground is a better way to beat traffic than building flying cars:
- underground is weatherproof
- underground is soundproof
- by tunneling underground, there’s no fear and anxiety about a flying car falling on your head
- tunnel construction and operation are silent and invisible to anyone on the surface
- there’s no practical limit to how many tunnels can be built (if population in any area increases, just build another level of tunnels in that area)
Another benefit to tunnels: you can’t get a traffic ticket!
As a Los Angeles traffic ticket attorney well acquainted with the frustration of LA traffic and the burden of dealing with a traffic ticket, these are exciting times for our society.
