90% chance you are right, but dreamers take risk on the 10%. Dreamers risked their lives to build the first airplane, risked their career on the first microcomputers (Woz at HP), risked their presidency on the first national health-insurance system, etc.

We owe a debt of gratitude and appreciation to the dreamers and risk takers. They gave us our future.

In bigger cities, such a contraption would have to be computer-controlled to reduce the risk of human error to an acceptable level. But perhaps if something gets going in a rural area, investments in city-friendly control infrastructure will follow. Thus, it doesn't have to start out being city-ready; it just has to start out (and gain usage).

Something like NASA's vertical-takeoff Puffin design sounds like the way to go for those without big yards or landing spots. Although, that's not really a "car". But "mass commuter planes" is close enough. 2D traffic sucks here; time to up-grade.
