Over at the Seattle Transit Blog, Adam B. Parast has a great post about the state Department of Transportation's new program to make our highways safer. How? By making them smarter:
Preventing accidents by managing traffic is smart and practical. In the not-so-distant future, all of these freeways will be tolled, so we might as well get drivers comfortable with being bossed around by technology. A freeway system with the ability to alert you to dangers ahead (this is one good example) is worth having.
I especially like how, in this video, there is the obligatory frame of a jean-and-sneaker-clad leg boarding a sad looking city bus. It is as if the message was, "make your highways safer, because if you don't you'll be just another hobo busin' it to the plasma donation place in Greenwood."
