    The biggest problem I see is one of traffic control. How to stop large numbers of flying cars from colliding with each other.

    Sensors and interactive controls like the ones on self driving cars now.

    They don’t perform flawlessly, not yet.

    Plus, ground vehicles only need to move in two dimensions (left and right). Add a third dimension ( up and down) and the problems become exponentially more tricky.
    You’ve only got to look at the complexities of today’s air traffic control. Compound that with flying cars and you have a recipe for instant carnage.

    Yes and then there’s the weather, nighttime, maintenance and more.
