Re: Saving money not parking
Your AV will choose quiet roads to cruise up and down whilst it is waiting for your call :)
It is all about the money (and control) though.
AVs cannot break the speed limit - no more fixed penalties
AVs don't need car parking space away from home - no more parking charges or Parking Eye
AVs can't drive recklessly - no need for traffic cops
No need for DVLA (other than model approvals)
No need for DoT
No need for HoC Transport committee
The list goes on and on
The potential impact on political control of AVs is only just being realised by those whose very livelihoods currently depend on non AV forms of transport (including Professors of Institutes of Transport and Logistical Studies).
