In late 2016, Elon Musk mentioned on Twitter that he may start a new company to beat traffic using underground tunnels. Musk called his company The Boring Company. The name is very ironic because his company is anything but boring. Musk said he would start by digging tunnels under Los Angeles. Just last week, Elon Musk posted a video on YouTube video showing his vision for his The Boring Company. His inspiration for starting this company is the insane LA traffic that drove him nuts. (No pun intended)

To start, Elon Musk wants to make street-level elevators to descend cars to underground tunnels and the car is off at up to 124 miles per hour. You may think that this isn’t very safe, but it is. The car is being driven by a capsule that will be connected to one another in order to maintain traffic and make sure the cars are going as fast as possible.

In a way, these tunnels would promote Tesla vehicles because they are all electric and do not give off emissions. This is because the tunnels are closed and if there were gas-powered cars, there would be all that pollution stuck inside the tunnel.
