    Default China's Car-Straddling Bus

    http://www.smartplanet.com/technolog...ean-tech/4934/

    Will this be a success or failure?? Let debate.

    If it works as describe in video, then kudo to china. It will greatly reduce traffic problem in big cities such as beijing and shanghai. However, such bus only works in big and crowded cities where traffic jam occurs on a daily basis. Here in Canada, it doesn't work and it's not practical. Most people here still prefer cars.

    IMO it will work assuming every one follows traffic rules. The biggest issue I see is if some idiot driver runs into the thing. I wonder how stable the bus would be when a car rams into it.

    Yeah, if there is a big accident underneath the bus, then it could be chaotic.
