* uses of cars are for 1-2 people transports

* have the technical capability to have small, energy efficient cars

* some cases cars with automated drivers are safer than humans

* automated shared car system would reduce emissions, decrease grid lock in cities, increase safety, enable faster personalized public transit options, and better utilize vehicles
