The tour aims to point out that the dominance of the car is neither inevitable nor desirable. The dark side of car culture is huge yet largely out of mind:- from obesity to lung disease, climate change to strip mining, and 3 million lives tragically cut short globally every year, largely the young and the poor.
Why do we accept private motor cars when we know they make no sense in the long term? How has our society become so entwined and dependent on car culture? What steps can we take to begin real changes and to free ourselves from this deadly embrace?
