There are other benefits to no longer having to own a car. Parking, and all the headaches that come with trying to find a spot, or getting a ticket for not feeding the meter, will vanish. Some estimates suggest that 30 percent of drivers are looking for a parking spot at any given time. If driverless cars can communicate to each other through technology, they will be able to tell other cars when their spot will be available, and they will obviously park themselves. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University told me that parking spaces in cities could become a thing of the past, as vehicles will travel to the outer areas of a metropolis to wait for passengers, completely eradicating traffic (and traffic jams) near parks and walkable shops.
