It has gradually gone up for most, to self-driving cars are no longer a fantasy from a sci-fi-fremtidsunivers.
The driverless cars are coming whether we will it or not. And honestly - are you not a little happy at the thought of not having to look for parking spaces more?
According to a new study published in the journal Transport Policy, even the driverless cars may even welcome not having to waste time on the kind. With today's soaring parking fees can probably answer for them just to run around until the car owner must use it again.
It writes the american The Drive.
According to Adam Millard-Ball, who is an associate professor at the University of California and author of the new study, it will cost all the way down to two dollars per running mile to let the car roll on the road - a considerably less expense than most parking tickets.
- the Price of parking is what gets people to ditch the car and opt for public transport, but self-driving cars do not need to park. They can get around paying for parking by driving instead. They will have any incentive to create chaos, predicts Adam Millard-Ball, according to The Drive.
In his calculations he has taken into account normal wear and tear on cars, which runs largely uninterrupted all around, and even then the price of about two cents a mile.
The environmental impact of such parkeringsfri cars he has, however, not counted on.
as soon As the self-driving cars are rolled out on a large scale, there is a big risk that they will create traffic congestion in all cities. Even a relatively small number at a few thousand driverless cars would lower the average speed in major cities significantly.
Therefore, proposes to Adam Millard-Ball, to introduce charges for driving in city centres - a system that already exists in London.
Bildelingstjenester as Uber and Lift, which is projected to be the first that really takes the driverless technology supports such a payment system.
- The fees could raise money for the towns to improve transport conditions. The point is that you need to do it now, before driverless cars really are widely used, says Adam Millard-Ball.
