Elon Musk and the Boring...

Elon Musk and the Boring company have almost finished construction on their first tunnel which runs under Los Angeles. "The tunnel will be a key component of its Loop transportation system, which will transport people in their own cars or passenger 'pods' for bicyclists and pedestrians. The high-speed system will allow people to bypass LA traffic and get around the city faster." Critics have said this may just make traffic worse as it will attract more people to gravitate towards cars and wait at tunnel entrances. However, Musk and his supporters believe tunnels like these could be the first step to alleviating traffic in big cities around the world. More importantly, with the rise of self driving cars, Musk believes tunnels like this could become the future of both intra and inter city travel.
