BBC: "Have we fallen out of love with the car permanently?"


Vrrrrm to the web site

"Ten years ago, a woman called Barbara Noble asked an important question: 'Why are some young people choosing not to drive?'

"Barbara was a statistician at the Department for Transport and her report was trying to untangle a mystery.

"For decades, the richer Britain got, the more people drove. But somewhere in the 1990s things changed. The economy was bouncing along nicely, but our car mileage stayed flat.

"In fact, if you singled out young people, especially young men, we were driving a lot less.

"What Barbara's report had touched on was something that eventually became known as 'Peak Car' - the idea that we had permanently fallen out of love with our cars."
