Bruce Dickinson

Mr. Mays, in Bruce Dickinson's opinion, is far more astute than 99% of the local politicians in the bay area. The mere fact that recessions such as the early 90's, the dot.com bust, and the financial crisis all ended up in real estate prices going down, sometimes severely, only reinforces the point that there is no permanent housing shortage, as many allege. Moreover, the population of San Mateo County as well as its component cities has barely increased over the past 40 years.

This "transit oriented development" concept is an already outdated model. Driverless vehicles and managed traffic systems will end up taking many more cars off the road, dramatically reducing congestion. The result: an increase in the number of people living AWAY from the big cities and downtown centers. If your 40 minute no-traffic commute is one during which you can be whisked around in the comfort of your own vehicle, while taking a power nap no less, all these downtown infrastructure developments with small spaces and access to limited service public transportation will be rendered practically useless in the way of providing a superior lifestyle.

Bruce Dickinson thinks state and local politicians would benefit most from driverless cars: no need to keep fixating on the rear-view mirror!!!
