Abstract

The ideas that our way of providing mobility for most people—by producing cars and other vehicles suitable for private operation—are basically wrong, are not uncommon; these views are voiced strongly by a motivated and determined minority. These ideas are motivated by a variety of ideologies and political, economical or ethical beliefs, from sheer antitechnological feelings to the fear that the present way of providing mobility damages the environment, from the idea that our mobility system is based on the exploitation of a part of humankind to the belief that it dehumanizes our lives.
