Abstract

Use of the private car is often viewed as highly problematic with the car implicated in an array of health and environmental harms. Policies to address these problems include provision for day-to-day mobility based on alternatives to the private car such as public transport, walking and cycling. Still, the private car continues as the preferred way to travel in many cities. A deeper understanding of this preference can reveal as yet under explored sites of resistance to alternative transport modes.
