I was raised 12 miles from the celebrated Route 66 in Southern Illinois. When I came of driving age, iconic cars that hit the road included the Shelby Cobra, the Dodge Charger, the Plymouth Road Runner, the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang. Cars were in my blood like the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. But not anymore.
- Driverless cars will be in full swing next year and take off like ATMs did in the 1980s.
- This means parking lots freed up for other projects, different home configurations and the ability to live almost anywhere.
