Just run random encounters:
This isn't a "random encounter" kind of game, it's simulation-based.



And my suggestion was kinda simulation based just really simplified. It would run fast and anyone who actually decides to trust NPCs with a vehicle and their stuff deserves to end up needing to go retrieve their stuff from a pile of burning wreckage in the middle of a Zombie Hoard.
Mars is currently the only planet populated entirely by robots. Therefore Martian invasion is the same thing as the robots taking over.

Good judgement comes from experience.
And experience?
Well, that comes from poor judgement.

First I'd like to propose an alternate solution to your problem.
Auto-driving.  While driving, you pick a destination you can reach by following roads on the overmap view, and the game autopilot you to that destination, exiting that mode if it encounters hazards.
This matches the feel if the game better while still making long trips convenient, especially if you take the time to clear your route.

Code-wise this isn't much of a problem, capturing all of the contents of a vehicle (including passengers), loading a new map area, and placing the vehicle is fairly easy.
Thematically it doesn't make sense for a survivor, or even a community of survivors to build and operate this kind of thing.

Sorry for the necro but I want to know when this will be implemented?, long trips on foot are certainly time consuming.

No idea.  My current focus is getting things stabilized for a release.

Are we finally getting close to a new stable?
