The hassel of finding parking in DC becomes but a bitter memory as residents abandon personal cars in favor of collective car ownership shares. These non-profits managed by local hackerspaces retrofit self-driving cars with mobile devices allowing them to plug into the collective's network.
Open-source mobile apps allow residents to summon self-driving cars on demand, releasing them afterwards to stay useful rather than park.
Membership fees are proportionate to income. Collectives in other cities can "peer" with each other, allowing their members access to the remote collective. Non-members ride for gas cost plus a constant fee.
