London mayor: Self-driving cars? Not without jacked-up taxes, you don't!

Gordan

What about the downsides?

"London mayor Sadiq Khan has come out against driverless electric cars, telling Parliament that adoption of the vehicles by Londoners could harm government tax revenues, reduce the number of cyclists"

[...]

"The transport authority, whose chairman is Khan, expressed concern that driverless car technology could encourage Londoners to give up forcing themselves onto overcrowded trains or slow-moving buses packed onto the capital’s ever-busier roads"

Are there any _negative_ effects?
