Put 100,000 miles a year on your car because it's so cheap! other then the congestion and road repair costs.
So, if the average goes from 15,000 to 100,000 miles per year, there would be several times as many cars on the road at any given moment.

Would doubling our roads handle that?

Obviously, we need to perfect micro homes and self-driving cars, then we can pave the world and never stop moving from one stretch of asphalt to another!
