I read “Self-driving cars set a path in Reston”, Fairfax County Times, page A-1,4 Feb. 15-17, 2019.
I couldn’t help but think a mixed message is being sent by the developer of Halley Rise. Fairfax County is pushing walking and biking as part of new developments around the county. At just 36 acres, I don’t think Halley Rise is all the large that there is a need for self-driving cars. You mean a resident can’t walk to the soon-to-be-built Wegman’s and back to their apartment? And, why, with the under construction Metro stop not all that far away, can’t a person just walk there? As far as I know, there isn’t any parking planned for the South side of the station, or the North side for that matter. This seems like an unnecessary addition to Halley Rise.
