I have wondered how many more accidents we will have if we are driving in three dimensions rather than in just two.

My guess is fewer...

Much more space to move around in than on a flat ribbon. But people will get into trouble.

Not so much collisions as crash "landings".

More space, but more blind spots too

If the traffic passes over and under as well as side to side.

Of course, maybe such a vehicle would have a 360 degree headsup type monitoring display.

With the number of people I see passing in no passing areas, I suspect there would be a lot of ducking over and under someone going just a bit too slow.
