The car is still the king (and expensive)

An article in Knack caused me some frowning. Some quotes…

‘The general impression is that problems caused by personal mobility -e.g. pollution and traffic jams- will be solved by governments or car brands, not by change in our individual habits.’

‘Measurements to discourage car possession and car use or discussions to make car use a lot more expansive are welcomed negatively.’

‘The consumer aspects that the advantages of cars (ease of use, flexibility and reliability) will be respected and that the government engages an efficient and pragmatic mobility policy.’

Ok, I might be a stupid biker, but to start with: it is each individual who has a choice and I see a lot of alternatives for car use in most of the cases around me. Just get honest with yourself instead of passing the hot potato to someone else…
