@Hyolobrika @Aleums electric cars may be strictly better for fossil fuel emissions by moving the power generation to power plants with here efficiency, but they still require elements mined in extremely destructive ways, in countries that get couped by the US on the orders of companies like Tesla.
But these memes are concerned with congestion which is not helped by electric or self driving cars and it's in fact exacerbated by them. That's all.
@Hyolobrika @Aleums one of"features" touted by self driving car companies is that the car will drive around the block while waiting for you so you don't have to pay for parking. And they'll come pick you up from places. So instead of the road being full of mostly empty cars it will be full of entirely empty cars
