Good idea or Accident waiting to happen??

submitted on August 4, 2010 by outcastplo313 in "Products / Gadgets"
China has overtaken the United States as the world's biggest producer of greenhouse gases and biggest energy consumer.
But the country is also thinking in big and bold ways when it comes to how it will reduce pollution and a new plan to build a "straddling bus" is among the most space-age schemes yet.

In an effort to go green and relieve congestion without widening roads, the Shenzhen Huashi Future Parking Equipment company is developing a "3D Express Coach" (also known as a "three-dimensional fast bus").

    Nice concept, but it would make for an awful accident.

    Interesting concept but how would you change a lane? I guess just slow down and wait for a bus to pass... Eeek

    Any new idea would require an orientation period. Am sure people would get used to it and prepare for turns/exits.
