Not unlikely that there is at least some sort of prototype for a flying car, but that picture is at least questionable.

I have no idea how they would regulate flying car traffic.

The whole flying car deal, I highly doubt it would ever happen. There is no way to regulate traffic and could you imagine even the slightest fender bender would probably send at least two cars falling to their death, not to mention the poor people in some alternate lane of traffic below them and the people on the ground. What happens when someone runs out of gas? It will NEVER happen, no matter how many prototype designs come out it will never become a comon form of transpertation

I agree with you. However, I think there is a possibility of a hovering vehicle.

I have no idea how they would regulate traffic, but if flying cars were designed to go only 15-20 mph, its conceivable that an accident wouldnt be as devistating as you make it out to be. By the time avg Americans would be able to purchase them, they will have definitely figured something out.

I would guess that flying would be only to avoid accidents or traffic jams.

Are you kidding me? Flying cars? I have enough problems with people who don't use their blinkers to go left and right. If you throw up and down into the equation, I might just flip my lid.
