>This could revitalize downtown shopping districts, for example.

Downtown shopping districts already solved this problem...by putting parking lots in the back or shared multi-level parking garages off to the side.

Self driving cars aren't magically going to give them money to rebuild if they haven't already.

In Toronto, parking space within walking distance of shops is expensive. People would rather build condos with it. Being able to park cars five or ten minutes away would make parking more feasible.

Of course, we have a crazy thing called public transportation, but our populist Premier hates it.
