The Automobile and the Future

In the near future, there will be significant challenges to the continued use of the car:

  • Automobile use is a significant factor in pollution and contributes to global warming.
  • Increasing population and prosperity are increasing traffic congestion.
  • Reserves of fossil fuels, particularly oil, are limited
  • Automobiles are a dangerous form of transportation. One million people die each year in car collisions worldwide.
