Elon Musk to dig tunnels, because traffic makes him mad

SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder gets stuck in traffic, decides on a 'boring company' to tunnel underneath traffic

By Anthony Garreffa from Dec 18, 2016 @ 0:02 CST

Elon Musk, the visionary behind Tesla Motors, SpaceX, PayPal - and very soon, a company that bores tunnels underneath traffic so that Musk - and millions of others, won't have to sit in peak hour anymore.


On Saturday, Musk tweeted: "Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging...", and if you thought he wasn't serious, a few hours later he added: "I am actually going to do this". Musk has said some out-there things before, so we don't know if he's going to be creating a boring company, but it could happen.
