Transit Lanes

Transit lane confusion

Half the time these days I sit in gridlock on Melbourne’s Eastern Freeway, waiting to get into the city at the Hoddle St or Alexandra Pde bottlenecks.  I’m always jealous of the people flying past in the transit lane – sometimes laughing a those who are caught by police, driving by themselves – as they’re clearly getting to work on time, unlike me.

Bicycles are allowed in transit lanes, however.  So are motorbikes.  And this leads me to wonder – the only difference in a traffic capacity sense between motorbikes and cars is the vehicle profile.  One is obviously larger and more unwieldy than the other, and can filter through standard car traffic.  What if a car could change itself to fit that profile?
