          the problem is people driving cars..too many cars with only one man sitting in it, start moving to scooters or bikes, there isn't enough space for all your stupid cars

                      Yeag great now show what happens when a self driving device gets bugged... ☠️ The solutions are BICYCLES VELOMOBILES BUSES and FEES for people not respecting safety distance, plus obviously all other infractions. Watch people aboard the Axiom in "Wall-E" movie and ask yourself if you wanna end up like that!

                                Self driving cars are programmed and built by stupid monkeys. Apparently videos are also posted on youtube by stupid monkeys

                                  Seems like you're overrating self driving cars' capacity's, I can't imagine how they can entirely stop traffic jams in huge cities, especially since their range is not wide enough (yet)

                                        The traffic light story is nonsense, most people can see the lights turning green and several cars start rolling at once, but once you get up to speed, there needs to be more distance in between, even for autonomous vehicles, for safety reasons. It would not help much as some studies with platooning at traffic lights only helped a fraction of time when using 5 cars at once.

                                          I wonder how long it's going to take for self driving cars to understand busy inner city traffic, the more chaotic Eurasian streets are way more complicated than the car heaven that is North America.

                                                      So basically we should use a communist slot car system and let the government control our driving. As a Californian, I agree with this fully.

                                                        They’re slowly but surely introducing self driving cars to the masses step by step. Back up cameras and sensors, self parking, blind spot detection, self braking and lane departure. This is getting people use to the fact their car is doing more work then they are. They need to do something cuz traffic is insane! And it has gotten 10 times worse past few years cuz of people texting and more people on the road

                                                                This doesn't actually work. If "always in the middle" is the only rule, then only the first car after a green light will start accelerating at its maximum acceleration, the second one at half the acceleration, the 3rd one at 1/4 the acceleration, etc., with the 20th one accelerating at 1 millionth the acceleration. And when the first car reaches the top speed, they will accelerate even slower, with nobody else ever reaching the top speed. After a while, the distances between the first few cars will be huge and there will be no reason to go that slowly, but since you said "always in the middle", that's what they will do.

They'd drive down to the very front of it until they can't go any further and expect people to let them pass. If you do that to me I will just run you off the road. This happens in a pot of other places like movie theaters and the bus stop. People would show up at the last second and cut ahead in line.

Next time I stopped in the middle of the traffic snake I didn't start again until the car ahead had already stopped and started a couple of times. Then I went the average speed I'd calculated and never stopped. I got scarily close to the car ahead a few times, but they'd always pull away in time.
                                                                                  I was so proud of myself that the line of cars behind me, stretching to the horizon, never had to stop again during the next nearly 2 hours of insane backup.
                                                                                  I mean, I probably saved someone's life.
                                                                                  It only takes a small percentage of us to make a difference. Plus it's like a game, so makes traffic hell a little less terrible. Just a little.

The middle land is the passing lane. The left lane is the fast lane. If you are not passing the person to your right then get into the slower lane. Simple.
