Fifty years ago the motor car brought us the promise of a new freedom. Today we have more than ten million vehicles battling for space on the most congested roads in the world. In the next ten years we are faced with the prospect of the number being doubled. The car no longer presents just a traffic problem, but threatens the future shape of our lives and the cities in which we live.
Raymond Baxter examines the problem with surgeons, architects, town planners, and motor manufacturers.
