Yeah but would you ban cars tynan ?Tynan said:'Should We Ban Cars?'
wild crazy stuff, too many people can't even imagine their life without a car, I'd dearly love to talk to the people that commute to work by car in London
I used to pass thousands of cars every single day on the North Circ in rush hour, barring the white vans and trucks, almost always a single person in every car
I don't think that is the answer, there are plenty of commercial operators requiring their drivers to travel for trivial reasons. I know, I was one!davidwalton said:Just ban the use of petrol and diesel in non-commercial vehicles.
No, the fuel is not the only problem, but it is the biggest when it comes to Global Warming. As for congestion, I am sure the current motorways could be used for car parking requirements like parts of the M25 and others are now. However, no more roads, just restricted access to those we have; especially in and around towns.snorri said:I don't think that is the answer, there are plenty of commercial operators requiring their drivers to travel for trivial reasons.

I don't think it is the type of fuel they burn that is the only problem either. Even if they burned tap water, the car would occupy just as much roadspace, cause just as much congestion, and be involved in the same crashes.
I would just hope owners would be required to justify the need for every journey, then this country would be a better place.
