Why Are Cars Important?

Axion23/CC-BY 2.0

Cars are important because they provide a common means of transportation, whether it is a longer commute to work or a shorter trip to run errands around town. In addition, those who do not have convenient access to public transportation, such as trains or buses, which is especially true in the suburbs, can use cars for personal transportation.

There are many different kinds of cars, including sports, luxury, family-oriented, small and large cars. Individuals living in tight spaces, such as cities, may rely more on taxis or agree to carpool with others instead of having their own vehicles. Another benefit of a car is that it is ready to go in the event of an emergency, providing faster access to necessary medical care. Many people also enjoy the freedom and independence of having a car.
