A man uses the “summon” feature of his Tesla car to avoid parking tickets.

I think it is likely that we, at some point in the future, will have self-driving cars circling our city streets, in a holding pattern waiting for their owners to call on them; as parking is becoming sparser, this is logical.

Of course, the best possible future of self-driving cars will be using them as cheap and available taxis, reducing much of the need for owning cars yourself.
