Cycling in Sydney Australia
"In a few years we'll have the opportunity to replace the whole automotive fleet with synchronised self-driving electric cars, cutting greenhouse gas emissions to almost nothing but we'll miss out because cyclists won't get off the road."

If it becomes illegal to send empty cars that far, they'll just use an app which books a reputable carsitter for the trips.
