The astonishing facts:
In Flanders people are prepared to go on foot or use a bike for distances up to 800 meters, for longer distances most of us use a car. Reasons for this car addiction concerning the 1600 respondents: the privacy, the comfort, the king of the road-feeling and the low price.
The average milage covered a day is 46,13 km (37,95 km when excluding those who travel more than 1000 km a day!).
