#1.  Air Travel Using Flight-Capable Cars Isn’t Safe

World-renowned business magnate, inventor, and engineer Elon Musk created The Boring Company with the idea in mind that there is much more opportunity for underground tunnels to revolutionize transportation through the development of ultra-fast pneumatic tubes than flying cars zooming throughout the air.

People would not be able to choose what direction they travel inside pneumatic tubes. Pilots of flying cars, on the other hand, could speed off in any direction they wanted. With a lack of roads to help keep traffic safe, cars capable of flying would almost immediately prove to be dozens of times less safe than their grounded counterparts.
