Self-driving cars will, once other pedestrian crossing methods are developed, signal the end to traffic lights. Because cars will adjust to each other, they won’t need to fully stop, as each car will space itself and navigate through opposing or cross traffic. Traffic lanes will also cease to exist; cars will simply move along roads as organically as blood through an artery. These points will save a ton of money on infrastructure spending.
These benefits will mean one thing: an almost perfect estimation of travel time, leading to more time living outside of your car.
