IVHS: how will it change society?

In: Proceedings, IVHS America, 1992 annual meeting, 17-29 May 1992, Newport Beach, Calif.

Authors: Patricia F. Waller

Now the Interstate System is essentially completed, and our country has built more or less all the highways it is going to build. It is generally agreed that we should not be turning more and more land into highways. Rather, we need to learn how to make better use of the highways we already have. And to accomplish this, we are initiating IVHS, the next major leap forward. It will take at least as long to develop and implement IVHS as it did the interstate highway system, and its impact will be at least as revolutionary.
