Self-Driving Public Transportation Is Off To A Rocky Start
November 15th, 2017
Self-driving public transportation got off to a rocky start last week. A driverless shuttle in Las Vegas crashed only hours after it was launched just off the Vegas Strip.
Nobody from the dozen passengers in the shuttle was injured when it collided with a semi-truck, probably because the top speed is 25mph. It’s completely driverless with no steering wheel or pedals but there is an attendant that rides along to make sure everything goes smoothly. Would take autonomous public transportation?

This week Katie has two gorgeous rides that best represent the quality and variety you’ll see at the Summit Racing Show Car Series. Former General Manager of the ISCA Bob Millard will be her guest to talk about the 28 car shows in the series. The International Car Show Association (ISCA) is the sanctioning body behind the series. Owners from all over the U.S. and Canada compete for the title of Grand Champion.
In the studio is a 1939 Ford Coupe owned by Bob’s wife Sandy. It’s got a small block Chevy 350 bored over to 355, custom paint, custom interior and a slick BASF “red” wrap. The second car belongs to Megan Tracy and is a show-stopping 1970 Camaro RS. It’s powered by a Chevy 350 making 385 horsepower and features custom interior and custom wheels.
