Fat chance of that where I live. It's hard enough to get them to widen the shoulders a bit for bikes. Urban areas, maybe, but quite frankly, I don't care what they do in urban areas.

Automated driving is less efficient than you, but not compared to the average driver.
It's not the driving on any particular trip that makes autonomous non-owned cars (ones that you summon when you need them) inherently inefficient, it's the extra mileage the empty car racks up getting to where you are.
