[216-2] Superhighway to the Future / 通往未來的超級公路, 2004

In the year 2000 a 24-lane superhighway packed bumper to bumper would have to circle the globe 1.8 times to accommodate the world’s 440 million cars. By the year 2030, however, the superhighway to the future would have to circle the globe 4.25 times to accommodate the projected 1 billion cars. A hypothetical parking lot to accommodate this number of cars would encompass all of Belgium.

在2000年,如果在一條擁有24條車道的超級高速公路塞滿車輛,必須繞著地球1.8圈才能將地球上的4.4億輛車子全部納入。預估在2030年,這樣的一條超級高速公路必須繞著地球4.25圈才能納入未來地球上的10億輛汽車。一個能容納這麼多車子的停車場則是必須跟整個比利時一樣大。
