I am not arguing that cars shouldn't exist. Obviously if you commute a distance or if your work depends upon it or if you have a family etc etc then use a car, hopefully EV or an ICE car that's suitable for the purpose. But where possible use public transport or a bike or walk. So many people jump in the car to save time, what do they do with the time that they 'save'. Watch telly, go on fmttm etc. When I was a kid, it was only once a blue moon that I got to go in my dads car (mam didn't drive), ie going on holiday or the occasional day out. School, shopping, match etc, you made your own way there, ie walked or bus. Now everyone has a god given right to be transported from A to B saving as much time and energy as possible. People are getting fatter, the world is dying, its not rocket science.You'd be dead by lunchtime on that where I live. Families carry stuff, and usually lots of it, particularly when kids are young.
