Private cars have become the dominant mode of passenger road transport in developed countries. This book examines the past evolution towards car-based forms of transport: problems associated with it, the success of past and current efforts to deal with problems of pollution, congestion, safety and degradation of public spaces and amenities, and also new developments, visions and strategies.
