This vision of the future is portrayed as some sort of Promised Land, but it looks more like a vision of hell to me. And I can only assume that with all this extra "leeesure" time that people will have, they’re spending it all at the gym. There can be no other explanation as to why the car-dependant citizens of the future aren’t all wider than they are tall.
So no thank you. I’d rather live in a future where it’s easier to ride than drive.
