Too many people use cars for short-distance local trips, when they could walk or cycle. I believe that cars are good for long-distance and by-pass trips.
I was appalled that a woman who lives near me drives her kids to school when it rains or it is cold and their school is only two blocks away - a ten minute walk! They could easily put on sweaters and jackets, or raincoats and rubber boots and enjoy splashing through puddles on their way to school. The are denied this pleasure by this over-use of the car.
If we cut out all these local trips by auto, we could cut down on congestion and pollution and makes our streets safer. However, I still believe that the automobile is best for long-distance trips.
