Attractive alternatives to car use

The car is an ever-ready transport solution for an individual, but it is also a ‘social trap’: its unfettered use by many individuals leads to social and environmental degradation that no individual wants.

 Transport isn’t working. Lynn Sloman's book Car Sick shows why, and sets out clearly what the answers are. A must-read for everyone interested in transport.
