How Do We Prevent Accidents?
By: Billy Garrison (GRW)
What is the key to preventing car accidents? The answer could be self driving cars. Google has been experimenting with this concept and has a fleet of self driving cars. They have driven 300,000 miles without an accident. To read more about the future of self driving cars, click here.
SDITE Traffic Bowl Team are the Champions!!!
In case you haven't heard, the North Carolina State University (NCSU) Student Chapter represented the Southern District at the 3rd Annual ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl during the ITE Annual Meeting this past week in Atlanta, Georgia. They beat the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and Purdue University in the first round and then competed with Texas A&M and the University of Toronto in the finals. After six-tie breaker rounds (yes SIX) with Toronto, they answered the last question correctly and became the new champions. Congrats!!!!
