Most traffic lights are automatically set or by sensor plate in the road, but we're talking about an integrated multi-car road system that is vulnerable to the kind of 'hackery' that took over that Air Force drone in the Middle East and took it for a joy ride over sensitive areas where people had jumpy trigger fingers before frantic handlers outside of Las Vegas finally regained control of it.... not to mention all the R&D money it'll take to get all this up and running, with all the outgoing employees/consumers being rapidly replaced by automated jobs, there won't be enough money to pay for it. It's a snake eating its tail. Excessive automation is a self-defeating practice.
