An interesting concept. Would seem to require some training for drivers, for sure.

Interesting. Although I would think that around here where the streets are narrow, the cars may not be able to pass them all that easily without veering into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane.

and there's this take, saying the city has banned smaller companies -- like carryout restaurants -- from using these vehicles, while encouraging UPS to do so
