Hey hope you enjoy this video! I didn't talk about planes! I was floored by the quality of the food the Blue Apron had considering it shows up in a box at your doorstep. Legitimately great food and it's really pretty quick and easy so make sure to check out the link in the description if you like free food (and supporting Wendover Productions!)

I love the way you pull up info and the way you present it. I wish you would do a comparison between suburban train, commuter train, elevated/ at grade light rail, c train, street car, tram, at grade/elevated/ underground metro train, mono rail, sky rail, tram bus, electric bus on grid, In terms of capacity, speed, vehicular conflict, punctuality, stop/station types, fare collection types, overhead or track level power supply options, driverless ability, visual positive or negative presentability, width required for two way transport, density of people required for 0.8km radius around station to sustain. cost of construction per km, cost of unit train, station/ stop cost, station/stop maintenance cost, driver cost, support staff cost, cost of fare collection systems and if it will be worth to collect fares, daily ridership required to sustain maintenance, payback period for each. This question might seem stupid but why is there no construction under elevated lines? Are there any restrictions for commercial residential space under an elevated line. I believe if construction is done then the lines could be less unsightly while generating revenue from establishments below.

"discomfort is saving lives" is what ergonomic psychology taught me in 2005. Only back then it was all the rage to add that extra red brake light on top of the two already there. After a few years and everyone making it the new normal the effect was lost on reducing collision.

In addition, I guess, if there is a like a station in the center of these roundabouts with either actual people inside or people located somewhere nearby (adding jobs to people) remotely monitoring the road and show visual images presented like ads to remind drivers of the dangers of over-speeding, etc. then maybe accidents will go down further?

That’s weird, In Australia roundabouts are proven as more dangerous to drive around and create far more congestion. The government is slowly removing them instead of building more.

Many americans here in the comment section laughing at a idea of getting a bus instead of a car don't probably realise how good public transport is in europe. E.g. in Poland where i live in a big city its often faster to get places by bus since they often have seperate lanes from the other cars. The only issue really comes down to them being sometimes crowded during rush hours.

Its a cartel which doesn't want the public transit system to get properly implemented in any city in US. And the cartel includes - all the biggies in car_manufacturing, tire companies, oil companies and insurance firms... Do you think that the state have not thought about this proble. Sorry, there will be at least one or two good people who might have thought about an effective public transit system which can inturn fix this issue - and they might have silenced by this cartel.... If you need to understand this more - read about "why US doesn't have long-distance railway networks" and read about "Phoebus cartel" (follows the same principles)....

28 lanes? What a retarded way to spend money, all while increasing the carbon footprint. In Germany, not a single highway has more than 8 lanes. Simply build rail lines and keep the roads at mostly two and occasionally four lanes, it's not rocket science.

One way to solve traffic that i'm surprised you didn't mention in this video is self driving cars. Doing this would also dramatically decrease the number of accidents.

So, to surmise: 1- "Free" streets are very costly, as you are subsidizing traffic. 2- More rules equals to more chaos, fewer rules equals flexibility. 3- Equality in treating pedestrians, cars, bicycles and motor vehicles equals freedom, safety and efficiency! Sounds this goes in the direction of an anarchistic system, albeit a market one (due to pricing)! And it *works* !

More people should ride motorcycles. So many Asian countries I've been to where the people mainly drive scooters/mopeds/etc all seem to negotiate the traffic easily and rarely have accidents because they are all aware of their surroundings and being cautious, even if not adhering to strict traffic laws. I just cam back from Thailand and felt more at ease riding a bicycle the wrong way up up busy road without wearing a helmet than I am in my own car in my state capital in Australia.

You can vastly reduce traffic just by putting a 25 cent toll on a road. People freak out and will avoid a road when they're charged something up-front and obvious, yet the same people will sit in traffic for an hour and waste $3 in gas on the same road with little problem. Putting a $1-2 toll on the most congested highways and improving bus service along them can cure traffic problems immensely.

Lol adding a toll to certain bridges/routes simply does not work. For instance where j live we have state tolls and everyone just pays them especially if you are going to work because A. The tolls pay directly for road repairs (not every penny goes into some politicians pocket like some mag think) and B. The alternative route will get you where you need to go but add about 30-60 minutes usually making the route now unviable for work commutes.

I live in the Bay Area and know for a fact that not only do ramp meters severely congest the roads onto the ramp it actually has little to no effect on the volume of traffic on the highway. Probably the only viable solutions are to loosen zoning laws, broadly, and then to improve public transportation

:D 9:30 You can see how it helps. The entire right corked strip because they must give way. The whole is poorly designed. There are 4 lanes. Let them enter only two lanes from each part and let the others be at different heights. PS: I use translator.

Easy, limit the number of licence plates that can be issued. You build a road system for 500,000 cars then that's what you limit your registered cars to. Want to replace your current car with a new one, no problem your old plate will be transferred to your new car. Your old car will either be scrapped or someone may buy it who has a current licence plate. This would also encourage people to make better use of public transport.

Adding tolls amount to making things less convenient. That's called regression! And, it disproportionately affects the poor. And it increases bureaucracy and decreases efficiency.
