Fewer cars but each car spends much more time on the road.

Maybe this could be the end of driveways:

They keep wringing their hands over it but the chart shows production
fall against a few good years; it's probably just a return to trend.
Since cars last a long time, I am sure the population of cars must still
be rising.

I doubt it'll slow down global warming a jot.

Who cares.
I will be dead long before this has any effect and as an atheist I wont be in any position to care.

Correct.
To slow down global warming we must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases
into the atmosphere by over 80%.
Meanwhile the population of the world is now nearly 8B and is increasing
at 1-2% pa. While this goes on any reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
simply will not happen - all those teeming millions in Africa, Asia and
other places will want their increase in standard of living.
The only thing that will work is a big reduction in the world's
population of humans.
This will happen anyway.
Whether it be through war or pestilence or some more humane means is
really up to us.
